Tonght's Show: John Bury, Vietnam Vet and Agent Orange Victim.
Special Guests: John J. Bury, US Navy/retired/ Vietnam War Veteran
I am infected with Agent Orange Dioxin poisoning. I am known as a Blue Water Navy Sailor. I had made 4 deployments to the waters of Vietnam, known as the combat zone in the South China Sea and Tonkin Gulf onboard the USS Sacramento (AOE-1), during the periods 1968, 1969, 1970 & 1971.
At the time of my enlistment in the US Navy, February 1953, my home town was Philadelphia, Pa.. After 22 years of Naval service, I retired USN, April 1975. I now make my home in Media, Pa. I am married to my wonderful wife Cathy (Reilly) Bury, of Philadelphia, Pa.
In 2002, I was diagnosed with my first cancer. In time, three more cancers developed in my body. Rapidly my quality of life diminished. It is my belief I was poisoned with Agent Orange Dioxin. AO, as we call it, was a herbicide used as a defoliant in Vietnam.
I am one of many who have taken up the sword of advocacy for Vietnam veterans, their children and widows. I write articles for publication to inform the American people about Agent Orange and what is has done to those who have died and those who still live with diseases cause by that deadly herbicide.
God Bless the American Veteran!

On Friday, January 28, 2010, thanks to Director Keith Famie, three of my songs from the "Wars and Stripes" CD were chosen for use in his documentary "Our Vietnan Generation". The premiere featured at the Fox Theatre in Detroit and honored Vietnam Veterans for their service. Songs used for the feature; "We shall never forget" (theme song), "Mikie's Minutes" (tribute to Sgt. Michael Ingram) and "Look Away" (a music video reflection of the treatment of our Vietnam Vets upon their return to the States). I owe a debt of gratitude to Keith for including me in his extraordinary and important work! In October, 2010, Director Agustin Blazquez, chose "You don't know Che" for his documentary, "Che; the other side of an icon" that premiered in Miami, Florida. A music video was produced as well intended to expose the true Che Guevara, right hand man and executioner for Fidel Castro. Past songs and CD's are story based, American folk and rock genres and include "Ironman" (tribute to John LaPointe, an ironworker who volunteered his time to tear down the steel structures of the Twin Towers after the 9/11 attacks) and "Leavin' Detroit" (a reflection on tough times and lost jobs in the Detroit auto industry).
***Special Addition With Your Host Reverend Don***
"No event in American history is more sunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now. Rarely have so many people been so wrong about so much. Never have the consequences of their misunderstanding been so tragic." Nixon
