Episode 2544 of the Vietnam Veteran News Podcast will feature a look at the explosive report about the American war in Cambodia. The source for this look is the recently released paper by the Merry Band of Retires titled, United States Secret Wars in Cambodia: Long-Term Impacts and Consequences.
The Merry Band of Retirees is an academic group of individuals who have gotten together to utilize their academic expertise to carry on studies of life activities related to their fields of study. The group is led by Professor Kenneth R. Olson.

Previous papers by The Merry Band of Retires featured on this podcast include ones about the war in Vietnam, Laos and Thailand.
This paper was submitted on behalf of the Merry Band of Retirees by Professor Kenneth R. Olson1 and David R. Speidel. Olson is associated with the College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois, Urbana, USA, firstname.lastname@example.org
Speidel is a USDA Resource Conservationist and Agricultural Consultant with Natural Resource Conservation Service and Foreign Agricultural Service, Benton, Missouri, USA.

Also covered in this section is how the Cambodian people who suffer from Agent Orange exposure are being ignored.
