SHARE AGENT ORANGE VETS RECEIVE EXTENSION

Vietnam War veterans who were exposed to the toxic chemical Agent Orange will have more time to claim a share of a multimillion-dollar fund to compensate them for their injuries.

U.S. District Judge Jack Weinstein in New York on Thursday extended a deadline for veterans and their families to apply for payment from the Agent Orange settlement. Veterans originally had until Saturday; now they have until Jan. 17.
