There are many among us still suffering from the affects of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. We honor those that gave their lives, limbs, mental health and are still enduring the remnants of the war today.
I was fortunate to be a relatively new Realtor in Santa Clarita, California in 1996 and had the good fortune to meet a couple selling their home. The gentleman was walking through the home with an oxygen tank and apologized for his appearance. He went on to explain that he was in the Vietnam War and had damaged his lungs from Agent Orange. I listened intently and compassionately. His wife was in the background listening and observing. I explained that the war was no stranger to me as I also was in the Army during this horrendous war.
About four months after our meeting there was a phone call. The person on the other end of the phone was the wife of this wonderful Veteran. She wanted to thank me for the love and admiration I had given to her husband. She explained that her husband had passed away due to the damage caused by Agent Orange. She went on to say that her house was off the market and that she wanted to move out of state to be with her family. She asked me if I would list her her home for her. My heart was truly touched. We listed her home and sold very soon there after. She moved to Alabama and was very appreciative. She has no idea how much her husband touched my heart and how great of an impact she had on my life with that call.
