Le Thi Phung cares for her 19-year-old son, Mai Dinh Tu, a second generation victim of Agent Orange, in their house south of Da Nang, Vietnam. Phung's husband served as a bomb disposal soldier from 1975 to 1990 and worked in many areas that had been sprayed with herbicides sprayed during the war. "He had to go to many dangerous places," says retired Col. Thai Thanh Hung, chairman of the Da Nang Veterans Association. "He could not refuse the orders." Phung's first child was born mentally disabled, and her son Tu was born with disorders that have left him  unable to talk or even sit up on his own. May 30, 2012.
