In Memory of Stephen Bashaw lost to Agent Orange in 2011.
I would like to honor my husband, Stephen Bashaw.
We lost him nearly three years ago on 27 May 2011, to gastrointestinal stromal tumor, a cancer known by the VA as being caused by his exposure to Agent Orange.
He was a Marine Corp veteran, having served 1970-1973, with a tour of duty in Vietnam as a radio operator.
After a 16 year break in service, he joined the Navy as a Seabee, retiring in 2007 with 20 years of combined service.
We, his wife, children and grandchildren, miss him every day.
Laurie Poissant Bashaw
