After my father passed away in 2005, I felt alone, angry and so many other things. I thought, I can’t be the only adult child. So I started looking for the adult children of Vietnam veterans.
I founded Agent Orange Legacy with the help of my mom, Sharon L. Perry. We started a grassroots movement. The Children of Vietnam Veterans started coming out of the woodwork. Agent Orange Legacy grew like wildfire; as the years went by and the organization grew.
We branched out and changed the name to Legacy of Our Veterans Military Exposures (LOVME). Somehow, over the years, Agent Orange Legacy got lost in the transformation to include all the toxic military exposures. Now I feel compelled, more than ever, to continue my work as Agent Orange Legacy.
Agent Orange Legacy is for the Children of Vietnam Veterans by the Child of a Vietnam Veteran!
It is time to stand up and make our voices heard.
