Karen Gogol

Karen’s husband, Daniel R. Gogol was a Vietnam Veteran (68/69 to 8/70 Co. D, 4th Bn, 9th Inf, 25th Inf Div), who was 100% Permanent and Total with PTSD. When he first went through a program at the Veterans Hospital, Karen wrote this poem for him. Dan passed away at home from bladder cancer on September 3, 2009. He had been diagnosed in only October 2008, and his family felt it was from the effects of Agent Orange exposure in Nam.
