Vietnam Veteran William Shelby Bacon


I am deeply honored to have been invited to join a wonderful group of women, the wives of Vietnam Veterans with Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade IV Brain Cancer.

Their mission is to provide a list for Congressional review and to prove there is absolutely a connection to Vietnam ERA and Toxin exposure, including Agent Orange (DIOXIN), Herbicides, and many other chemical exposures. The Congress will then be able to sign a bill in to place to present to the VA and finally to be added to the VA’s Presumptive List. If you know someone whose life has been touched by this terrible disease, please direct them to

The hope is that no other widow must go through and fight for their DIC benefits, as their husbands are no longer here to support them.

I will help in any way that I can to spread the awareness of Vietnam Veterans with Glioblastoma and the Presumptive list. My passions are many and among them has been collecting veteran stories and honoring their service. But this honor and being invited to such a noble group of women takes my passion to a whole new level.

Pictured is Vietnam Veteran William Shelby Bacon, whose motto was, “Lead, follow or get out of the way,” and is one of many diagnosed with Glioblastoma, a very aggressive form of brain cancer. He succumbed to the illness and passed away on February 27, 2016.
