In Memory of Rodney Tyler lost to Agent Orange in 2012.
My dad, Rodney Tyler, served two tours in Vietnam, MCB-11 SeaBee….in Quang-Tri and Dong Ha, both heavily sprayed AO areas.
He was diagnosed at 35 with Parkinson’s disease, and was soon unable to work as a draftsman. We fought the VA for TWENTY years and he was finally awarded full service connected disability in 2005.
My dad lost the fight with Parkinson’s on October 29, 2012.
Thankfully my brothers and myself don’t have any health issues (at this time), but our kids, there are possibly questions there, that will never be able to be known/proven.
