You have NO IDEA how this war has impacted our family.

Mind your own business.
UPDATE: Claim filed. Prostate Cancer is presumptive relative to Vietnam service and exposure (for a YEAR) to Dioxin and Agent Orange. I wish he had investigated this in 2008 when the cancer began. But he is ENTITLED to this benefit and he is
actively seeking compensation.

If you had BOOTS ON THE GROUND in Vietnam in the areas that were defoliated, please click the link to see other medical issues that are considered presumptive.
