Gloria Estefan's Father

...Born Gloria Fajardo on September 1, 1957 in Havana, Cuba, her family escaped to Miami in 1959 when Fidel Castro took over the country. Two years later, her father took part in the unsuccessful Bay of Pigs invasion. He got caught and was incarcerated for a year and a half. After his return to the United States, he joined the army and served two years in Vietnam, where he was exposed to Agent Orange, which may have contributed to the disease he was diagnosed with upon his return, multiple sclerosis.

Anyone know anything else about a link between Agent Orange and MS?

Hi - I just came across your page as I was looking for more info on the Estefan MS case, myself. My father ingested Agent Orange in Vietnam in 1971 and was diagnosed with MS about 10 years ago. We are working on establishing a connection between the two. Have you had any luck or found any other resources on this?
