Agent Orange & MG
I was stationed @ the DMZ in Viet Nam in Aug. 1968 to Feb. 1969. Approx. two years 2-1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with mild general MG. As I understand, it can take up to seven years for this disease to fully develop. That would make me @ 50 years old which would be @ 30 years after my deployment at the DMZ. I served a total of two tours in Nam 1968 to 1970.
