Before I found COVVHA, I didn’t have a true understanding of everything my dad, a Vietnam Vet who is wheelchair bound from nerve disease caused by Agent Orange illness, went through while in that country. I have met so many great people online and seen so many pictures that I have a newfound respect for all Vets. And since I too am suffering from a similar illness, presumably second-generation AO illness, I don’t feel alone. It’s a great avenue to gain awareness and education and to share all of this with our friends and loved ones. Thank you COVVHA!
