Podcast Play Button

Former United States Marine and Vietnam veteran Fred Goger served his country and did more than his fair share in that faraway part of the world.


But when he returned and began suffering from the side-effects of exposure to Agent Orange, he never expected his offspring (Joseph, Matthew, Richard, Jennifer and Samantha) would have to deal with his 1960s exposure to the poisonous herbicide.

Fred discusses his kids’ (Joseph, Matthew and Richard) cancers and more in this candid and revealing interview (30:56).
