I just wanted to let all of you know that my Dad passed away this afternoon at about 2 PM suddenly. I am not sure of all the details because Nong was a little too shaken up to try and explain everything to me. but I am currently making arrangements for his burial. He is the greatest man I have ever known and I know he was always proud of the fact that he had the guts to serve his country with honor. I know for a fact that he was always especially grateful for all of your friendship and support during this tough time of his life. I Loved my Dad with all of my heart and I already miss talking to him. Thank you. I wish the best for you in fighting for your VA cases as I read this string also to see what's going on with my Dad's case and have often seen your stories also. I hope all of you win your cases. He would've wanted that also.
