This show is in honor of my deceased father, Harry Koster, who was in Vietnam War, and received a Purple Heart for his service to his country. He was honorable discharged after a supply truck he was in ran over a land mine causing him to be thrown clear. My father came home, healed, met my mom, married her, and had four children before showing any signs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, due to combat. My father died of Kidney cancer with multiple tumors all over his organs. It was thought to be from agent orange exposure but we couldn't prove it. My disabled mother received no spousal survival benefits from the Army. My sister is still trying to help her fight for spousal benefits for almost a year now. My father lived with cancer for eight years and lost the battle on May 24, 2012. May he rest in peace.
