    Agent Orange continuing to do what it Does!

    One of my Deacons in my Church is in big time need of prayer! He is Curtis Peavy! Also known as Dwayne Peavy. Anyway, he was stationed at Ben Thuy Air Force Base in the 63 - 65 time frame and has just had a Bone Marrow Transplant due to the effects of Agent Orange producing "Myelodysplastic" Syndrone or "Pre Leukemia" and he is having a time dealing with the Transplant! The Anti-Rejection Meds are brutal in their Side Effects!

    If you think about him, pray for him, if you know him, I have a way for you to be able to contact and encourage him.

    Prayer sent for him. I also have a friend that suffers from exposure, but it is not as severe as your friend.

    Prayers sent, my brother in-law a Viet Vet also was recently diagnosed with type two diabetes due to Agent Orange exposure and is now on the registry.

    A lot of times the after effects kill more than the enemy did,not to mention birth defects in children born to Vietnam Vets

    Prayers going out to my Vietnam Brother....
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I performed the funeral service for my old police partner maybe a decade ago.
    Marine vet, Vietnam service.
    Cause of death -- officially -- was diabetic complications.
    It's marked "Agent Orange" in my book.
