    1. I was born in Biloxi, Mississippi on February 3, 1969. My dad was stationed there as a Navy Seabee. He enlisted in 1965 and served two tours in Vietnam. Growing up I never really knew my dad was in the military. In the summer of 1985 my dad took his life. Even after his funeral I never thought about his military career. In 1996 my last child was born and my only child I had an epidural with. After that, I was constantly having issues with my back, my legs felt like they weighed five hundred pounds, the pain in my legs was getting worse as the days went by, and my lack of sleep did not help matters any. After years of dealing with the pain, my Dr finally ordered a MRI and I was diagnosed with tethered spinal cord, split cord malformation, and a host of other issues a 38 year old woman should not have when it came to my back. My first surgery was the summer of 06. I returned back to work and was blessed to meet a Navy Vietnam vet. As I shared the story that my dad was a Navy vet, he started asking me if I had any health issues. As I stated telling him, he got up from the table, grabbed a VA newsletter and told me to file a claim with the VA. If it had not been for this vet, I never would have connected my disease with Agent Orange, let alone the time my dad spent in Vietnam. This is where my journey started. I ordered my dad’s military records and started my claim. I will never know everything of what my dad went thru but I got a good idea. I made up my mind bank then that I will do whatever it takes to spread the word about agent Orange and the affects it has had on dependants. I have three grandkids now and so far they are not showing any issues, but as a child, I showed no issues either.
