        Agent Orange and the Vietnam War

        Agent Orange was the name of a potent herbicide that was used by United States troops during the Vietnam War to defoliate trees in the jungle. The chemical has since been determined to cause various diseases, including cancer. This segment from Iowa Public Television's Iowans Remember Vietnam documentary includes archival footage, and a first-person account of a veteran and his experiences with Agent Orange.
