About this Event
Film Screening Q&A - Vietnam: The Secret Agent
The Intrepid Museum invites current and former service members and the public to a screening of the newly restored documentary Vietnam: The Secret Agent. This 1984 film documents the extraordinary history of chemical warfare, agricultural herbicides, damage to the world environment, and the plight of Vietnam War veterans and their families as they struggle for treatment of exposure to Agent Orange and dioxin. Almost 40 years later, Vietnam: The Secret Agent still resonates today as veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq continue to advocate for treatment of health complications due to burn pit exposure.
Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion with the filmmakers and veteran health advocates moderated by Matthew Ryba, Director of Community Outreach and Education at New York-Presbyterian Military Family Wellness Center and Marine Corps Veteran.
This program is free with advance registration.
Who is this event open to?
