Dear C-123 Association,
I am writing to thank you, once again for all you have done for me and all concerned with the C-123 problem.
I heard from the VA that My late husband was deemed to have died from AO related disease and they have already deposited money into my account.
There is no explanation of the amount or how that is determined. It is 1/2 of what the Vietnam Veterans Assoc told me three years ago that would be awarded if it was determined that he had "boots on ground." (That is something that I know to be true, but cannot prove.)
I am assuming that either the Vietnam Vet Assoc was in error or that the widow's pension is decreased by 1/2.
In any case, I'm happy that they acknowledged his death was due to AO exposure.
I am sorry to hear about the mix-up with Chief Master Sergeant Henley's case. I hope it is resolved quickly.
Again, you will never know how deeply grateful I am to you.
God bless you,
