No, we didn’t channel Adrian Cronauer. He’s still alive and well to my knowledge. I was asked by Marti Oakley to do a radio show this hallowed morning to discuss the evolving heritage of the vanishing Vietnam Veteran and the roll of Agent Orange in that disapearance. Cancer is beginning to become a large part of it and the VA, of course, is mighty picky about which kind is presumptive and which is not. 

Basically, this is the same format as  our Blog Talk Radio shows with Jerrel and John but  with a different call in number. The show begins at 1300 Hrs Central Daylight time which translates out to 1100 Hrs on the very Blue Left Coast states and 1400 Hrs. Eastern Daylight time.



Call in number for this show is:

>> 917-388-4520 <<

Dial one (#1) at any time if you wish to enter the conversation or have any questions. And to all of you, thank you for your unselfish, unswerving dedication to keeping America  the greatest nation on Earth. Happy Veterans Day to each and every one of you.


P.S. Here’s the link to the show if any wish to hear it.

    Going through a recent local paper, an obit. caught my eye and I tore it out to share this:
    “L Cpl. Richard G. Warren, 72, a lifelong resident of Fairfax, passed away ….after battling Multiple Myeloma, an Agent Orange disease contracted in Vietnam.”
    And I felt sad for his family and friends, of course, but also grateful to them for telling his community what happened to their loved one–another AO casualty. I think this was absolutely important information to share about a mature man, who died too young, after one last battle.

      Thanks for the link. My old Marine and I listened to the podcast tonight; we enjoyed the uplifting discussion between Marti and Alex. Towards the end of the hour-long talk, and in response to emailed questions, Alex describes in graphic terms what porphyria is like and what happens when the sun hits his skin.
