I am the widow of a Vietnam War veteran who died of agent orange complications and I am in dire need of a new driveway. I live in Detroit Michigan are there any resources that can help me?
There are many good programs out there to help you. Start with these and find the one closest to you. Make an appointment and take what they ask of you with you to the meeting.

I am a widow of retired Vietnam veteran who died of complications of agent orange. My home is about to fall in need. I need it to get repaired asap. I have 2 autistic boys.
Contact the Office of Survivors Assistance here: www.va.gov/
You can also contact Habitat for Humanity
So sorry for your loss and your troubles. I have a few suggestions and pray you find a quick solution:
1. Have you contacted your local VFW Auxiliary to see if they have any services/financial assistance they can offer?
2. There is a Veterans Affairs link that talks about compensation. Not sure how that works as sadly, most of the Viet Nam vets I knew passed without asking for help. The link is www.benefits.va.gov/
3. This site is interesting...I don't know anything about it...so do your research, but perhaps this can also help you:
Prayers for your family!
