Q188: I served a year on the YRBM-17 in Dong Tam, part of 1968 and 1969. I was diagnosed with FTD - FLD, Frontal Temporal Degeneration in ‘07, it was believed by Dr. Frank Adams that Agent Orange had something to do with my brain damage. But I never heard of any sort of compensation at all for a disability like mine. My brain has not shrunk, there is simply 80% loss of Frontal Lobe function. I constantly worked outside nearly every day for that year. I was a nobody, no rank increase, just a deck hand. I gained nothing from my Navy experience. But, by chance if there is compensation available, it would be fantastic. I am disabled since ’07.
