Your Opinion: Agent Orange letter advances project

Dear Editor:

A few weeks ago the News Tribune published a letter about Project Agent Orange — a project started by a local member of this community. I am glad to report that the letter was reprinted in part on the Project Agent Orange website: and was also one of the contributing factors to assisting the project in receiving funding.

The Oppenheimer Family Foundation made a $5,000 donation to the project.

This money will be used to assist families with Agent Orange victims with the idea that a healthier lifestyle can positively impact on children 5 and under making them stronger and more able to succeed cognitively and physically as they move towards adulthood.

I just wanted to thank you for publishing the letter and I wanted you to be the first to know how the letter published in your newspaper impacted on making this project a reality.

Issue-oriented letters to the editor in response to this or about other local topics are welcome. All letters should be limited to 400 words. The author's name must appear with the letter, and the name, address and phone number provided for verification. Letters that cannot be verified by telephone will not be published.
