In Memory of Francis (Bud) Cartwright lost to Agent Orange in 2012.
My beloved husband Francis (Bud) Cartwright, lost to Agent Orange 6/20/2012 at the age of 61.
He served in Vietnam in 1969 and 1970. My husband suffered from PTSD (he was 100% service connected).
We had no idea the Agent Orange had given him metastatic lung cancer, what the doctors thought was Parkinson’s disease was brain cancer.
My husband was one of the men who even though he came home from Vietnam, he never really left there.
The only peace that I have is that he’s finally home, no more pain, no more flashbacks, no more anxiety.
To all Vietnam Veterans out there, thank you for your service and WELCOME HOME!!
