Agent Orange

Pham Minh Trieu with his daughter, Pham Thi Ngoc Minh 33 years old. He was in the Army from 1950 – 1975 and remembers hiding in underground tunnels during US Air Force bombing raids when dioxin was dropped on the area. He has strong memories of leaves falling off plants and trees dying. He also remembers eating fruit from dioxin-affected regrowth. He blames his daughter’s condition on dioxin poising, a direct result of his exposure during the war. David Dare Parker/The Stand
