Thank you for posting your husband's dramatic battle with this disease. My uncle Al (see Al's Story in the Rememberance section) was also a Vietnam Vet. My aunt briefly talked to the VA and they thought she might be able to get some benefits if Al's doc wrote a letter saying it COULD be from Agent Orange.

I wanted to let you know what a comfort you all have been to me as I searched for information and answers to a million questions. It was all happening too quickly for me to get involved with posting my own messages, but it was so helpful to read all of your stories.
Back to the beginning. Early in March, Al felt like he had a virus and just generally felt ill. He missed a couple of days of work, which he hadn
