In Memory of Joseph Kraus Jr. lost to Agent Orange 2013.

Joseph Kraus Jr. was in the United States Army and enlisted willing in 1966.

Joseph served a tour of duty that took him all over Vietnam for 3 1/2 years.

While in Vietnam he was exposed to Agent Orange.

I took care of my dad the last 8 years of his life. Joseph died July 27, 2013 of Lymphoma due to Agent Orange.

I miss him more that words can say. I try to think of words to describe him and my mind is flooded.

I am almost overwhelmed; words like father, grandfather, son, brother, godfather, uncle, cousin, role model and friend.

He was brave, honest, kind, gentle, caring, loving, and strong.

He is the 1st man I ever loved. He is the first man to show me love.

I’m a very lucky girl to have such a great man in my life.

I am even luckier to have had such a great man as my daddy and friend.

He is my HERO!
