At first I thought "ship" was a polite mispelling.

I can only hope and pray that his situation is atypical, but I have a good friend and fellow Marine who was exposed (sprayed) while in-country during 1969. Years later, he became afflicted with some rare cancers and became part of a group of nine Marines being treated at a VA facility. Of the nine, he and one other are the only ones left, but at a high price. The drugs used to treat the cancers caused other life-threatening conditions that he is still fighting. In his case, knowing that he has the support of a loving wife and good friends who do their best to help him avoid depression has been a decisive factor in his survival. IMHO, we can never do enough for these folks.

Semper Fi!
