Agent Orange was one of a group of 6 different dioxins used as herbicides during the Vietnam war era. They are often referred to as the rainbow herbicides, AGENTS: Green, Pink, Blue, Purple, White and Orange. They are highly toxic and cause dozens of forms of cancer, hormonal disruptions, and birth defects. 5 times more US personnel were killed by these than were killed in combat operations; over 400,000 and counting. And countless as Vietnamese as well.

The VA made me wait 4 years for care. My cancer was treatable when I first went in. I loathe them, they waited long enough for the cancer to kill me before giving me care. This story is repeated too often.

I've been back since. In 2008 and I'm going back soon. I was there to see where I previously deployed and made my reasons clear. I was treated with an insane level of respect I was not prepared for. I was shocked. The Vietnamese are a strong, proud, and noble people.

I think that would be wonderful to work with him, however the difficulty will be in getting a hold of him. Let's see if this IAmA helps. Thank you!

Yes. Countless Vietnamese are still being affected and they were a powerful, fearless, and worthy adversary. I have nothing but respect for them. My life has always been about service.
