Welcome to my dark little corner of the social networking universe. My name is Erica; I'm 19 years old and I live in New York. I am currently training to be an EMT and mortician. Death, dying, and survival intrigue me. I am fortunate enough to be in love.
Agent Orange was the code name given to a herbicide and defoliant used by the US military during the War in Vietnam. The herbicides were sprayed in the rural South areas of Vietnam in an attempt to expose the Viet Chong from their vegetation coverage and deprive them of food. About 4.8 million Vietnamese people were exposed to Agent Orange, resulting in and estimated 400,000 deaths and between 150,000 and 500,000 children being born with birth defects.
