7. Thank you. I appreciate this offer.

My father, a WW2 vet, didn't try to get VA services near the end of his chronic illness. I don't know why, but perhaps it was due to location. I wasn't as involved in his care on a daily basis.

My MIL is the spouse of Vietnam vet with three tours to Asia with Special Forces. It's likely Agent Orange exposure was affecting his neurological system before a heart attack took him down. She worked and raised three children while he was gone. It became so difficult that her younger sister moved from Tx to NC to help her at home. I anticipate needing help with her at home, if possible.

I'll look for an American Legion post. Just getting the right forms would be a huge help.

Again, thank you.
