In Memory of John Novack lost to Agent Orange 2012.
This is my father, Specialist John Novack of the United States Army. He fought in the Vietnam War from 1966-1967 with the 199th, LIB, E Company 3/7 and was exposed to Agent Orange during his days of combat in the jungles.
John passed away February 28, 2012 at the young age of 65. Agent Orange caused him to develop diabetes, renal failure and eventually metastatic bladder cancer.
He was on dialysis for the last 9 years of his life and stoically fought for his life until the very end.
My Father never regretted his time in the service. Near the end of his life he verbalized that even after all of the sickness and pain that he had to endure from contacting Agent Orange.
My Father would have proudly served in the all over again.
