Default Re: Agent Orange news.

Think the article says there are about 90K blue water sailors that were probably exposed.
I know several that were over there, that have had cancer, or still have it.
One suffered from Leukemia and survived, only to get killed in a car wreck. One of my cousins was a lifer in there,
and made multiple cruises over there during the Nam thingy. He has cancer of some sort now. He was a plank owner on our
first nuke carrier, the Enterprise. Another friend was in the brown water Navy, and was exposed multiple times, in the Mekong
Delta, and got some napalm dumped on him too. He's missing one kidney, due to cancer, and has had several warnings on his other kidney.
It just goes on an on.
Old age and treachery will always overcome youth and exuberance!
