In Honor Of RAYMOND HAMILTON

HELLO ALL
MY NAME IS SHAWNA TIEDEMANN AND MY FATHER HAD BEEN IN THE VIETNAM WAR
AND WAS EXPOSED TO AGENT ORANGE AND HAS BEEN LIVING LIFE TO IT'S FULLEST
AND I AM NOW READING A BOOK CALLED (AN ARMY WAITING TO DIE, THE TRAGEDY
OF AGENT ORANGE) AND IT SICKEN ME THAT OUR VIETNAM VETS WERE NOT TAKEN
CARE OF THE WAY THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN. IT'S AN INTERESTING BOOK TO PICK UP
AND READ. I GOT A CALL ON DEC.5TH AT 0148 TEXAS TIME FROM WASHINGTON STATE
AND IT WAS THE CALL I WAS NOT WANTING TO HEAR THAT MY FATHER HAD PASSED
AWAY IN HIS SLEEP AND HE WAS VERY PEACEFUL AND IN VERY LITTLE PAIN. IT HAS
BEEN HARD FOR ME TO DEAL WITH THIS BY MYSELF WHILE MY HUSBAND IS
DEPLOYED AND DUE HOME IN A FEW WEEKS AND WE HAVE 3 BEAUTIFUL GIRLS WHO
DIDN'T REALLY GET TO KNOW THEIR GRANDPA. WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT MY FATHER
HAD BEEN EXPOSED TO AGENT ORANGE I DID MY OWN RESEARCH.
THANK YOU
SHAWNA
