I was extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to be interviewed by veteran Ed Ruckle, who has graciously and generously taken on this project of bringing awareness to the tragedy of children of Vietnam War veterans who suffer from illnesses, thanks to their parents’ exposure to Agent Orange.

Ed told me that he feels that since he’s been blessed with good health all his life, he should help out the next generation, who battles from debilitating illnesses, with no help with medical expenses whatsoever or acknowledgement of culpability from the US government. I applaud and respect Ed for his continuing efforts. And as it turns out, Ed is also a dual Canadian/American like me, who also lived in California for some time! We found out we have a lot in common. His cousin also owns the popular Lebanese chain, Nuba, in Vancouver!

I will also be doing a podcast about my memoir, What Doesn’t Kill Us, with Ed, as well as talk about my forthcoming memoir, 17 Days. More about that soon!

For now, check out this interview. I hope you find it interesting and informative.

If you’re interested after watching my video, take a look at Ed’s channel and check out the interviews with other children of vets: Lori, Melissa, and Josh. ❤️
