:) have been trying to find current information on Viet Nam Veteran's and the effect Agent Orange had on them. My father died in 1991 at age 60 after 2 1/2 years of terrible illness which I attribute to Agent Orange. He was a career soldier, served two tours in Nam as an infantryman and Green Beret. He was diagnosed with Wegner's Granulomotosis, his kidneys failed, he could no longer produce red blood cells and had blood transfusions almost monthly. He developed severe hypotension which is what his death certificate states is his cause of death. His first heart attack was at age 46. He also had a part of his lung removed. He looked 80 years old when he died.
My husband, age 60, was in the US Air Force and was stationed on the DMZ at an air base where the Ranch Hands kept and fueled Agent Orange. The weather observation station he was in was on the air field near the bladders of fuel and chemicals. He has been unable to produce testosterone for many years, developed hypertension, adult onset diabetes, lately he has experienced bradycardia and hypotension. I have attempted to look online to find a connection between Agent Orange and the hypotension and cannot find any information.
