Dwain: day - I am sorry you lost your father at the age of 90 but its doubtful he died of a military related illness at 90. The country hasn't failed you, he lived to be a ripe old age, otherwise he'd died much younger than 90. Be happy you had him that long. My father died at age 42 from shrapnel that worked through to his heart. Am I crying about it, no.........he was proud to have served this Nation and understood the ramifications of what going to war was about.
