Millions of Vietnamese are still dealing with the impact of the Vietnam War more than three decades after its end.
Generations are suffering from the effects of Agent Orange, a chemical defoliant used by the US military to strip the land of vegetation to deny food sources and hiding places for Viet Cong fighters.
The herbicides and dioxin have seeped into Vietnam's earth and water and have been linked to illnesses, birth deformities and even death.
Agent Orange is also believed to have caused disabilities in US soldiers as well as several generations of their off-spring.

Now many of the victims are taking their case to the US Congress demanding accountability and compensation.
On Thursday's show we ask: Will there ever be justice for those whose lives have been shattered by Agent Orange?
Joining the discussion will be Tran Thi Hoan, a second generation victim of Agent Orange who was born without both legs and one hand, who is testifying before US Congress.
We will also have with us Dr Nguyen Thi Ngoc Phuong, who has researched the effects of Agent Orange on women and children in Vietnam, and former Navy nurse Susan Schnall who looked after wounded US soldiers during the Vietnam War.
You can join the conversation. Call in with your questions and comments on Thursday, July 15, at our live time of 1630GMT. Repeats air at 2130GMT, and the next day at 0230GMT and 1130GMT.
