California launches controversial effort to add more names to Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Under a new state law, more names can be added to California’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial – the names of long-deceased service members such as Navy Lt. j.g. Gregory Hodson, a pilot from West Sacramento killed in 1964 when his plane dropped into the waters of the South China Sea; but also, and more controversially, the names of service people who died of Agent Orange-related diseases decades after they returned home.
