Democrat Senator B.J. (D) Cruz is requesting a congressional investigation into the use of Agent Orange on Guam. The candidate for lieutenant governor is basing his inquiry on a United States Court of Appeals for veterans claims ruling that acknowledged claims of Agent Orange exposure from an air force veteran while stationed at Andersen Air Force Base in the mid-1960’s.
According to Senator Cruz this is the first acknowledgement by a federal agency that Agent Orange was used on Guam.
