Hello, I've read some of the postings re. vets' health problems and I'm wondering if any of you (or your husbands/ brothers) suffer from debilitating nausea and vomiting that requires hospitalization? My husband served with 173 ABN in the Central Highlands in 1969-70 and has been having these kinds of attacks since his return. Some attacks in the 1970s-80s required hospitalization for months at a time. He is just out of the hospital (6 days) with the most recent attack.
       We have always thought it was Agent Orange related, but of course there is no way to know for sure. Am wondering if there are others out there with this kind of illness?
