In Memory of Richard McCraw lost to Agent Orange in 2013.
My dad, Richard McCraw, lost his battle with lung cancer caused by Agent Orange on December 8, 2013. He had just turned 65.
Dad was drafted into Vietnam and served from 4/69 – 4/70 as a SGT in the Army. He received the Army Commendation Medal w/ OLC and the Combat Infantry Badge.
My dad was stationed in Tay Ninh. As a result of his service and Agent Orange, he dealt with PTSD, a brain tumor, seizures, Parkinson’s Disease, a plethora of other illnesses, and eventually, the extensive stage small-cell lung cancer that claimed his life.
I was his only child; my daddy’s little girl, and he left my 3 children behind as well. He is dearly loved and missed. He will always be my hero. May he rest in the peace that he so well deserves.
