Did Ivon Watkins Dow (IWD) manufacture Agent Orange in New Zealand during the Vietnam War?
In 1970, I was in the “cut up” room of the New Zealand Herald catching up on what had been happening whilst I was away on my first tour of South Vietnam.
There is something but we cannot define it.

Thanks for sharing. Did you realise sexual dysfunction can be atributed to PTSD? Of course you may not have this problem. Also sleep disorder can probably be attributed as well. From Kindle you can get "the complete guide to a good nights sleep". This book opened my eyes, so to speak. I haven't tried for this because I am on the maximum pension now. I am damaged by PTSD but still live a good lifestyle and I have even moved back into a mens choir which is a big improvement but I still have difficulty in belonging to groups.
Thanks again for sharing.
