Richard served in the artillery in Vietnam and was honorably discharged.  Later in life like so many of us serving in Vietnam, the effects of Agent Orange began to make itself known.  In Richard’s case, he developed prostate cancer.   He began to receive treatment and was designated 100% disabled.  Later after the treatment was completed, he moved in with his daughter and her family in Garner.  As his prostate cancer regressed, he began to develop colon cancer.   His disability was reduced from 100% to 30% by the VA.   We have researched the issue and learned that this action was within the rights of the VA.
