The good news is that there have been no medical setbacks since the April updates. Doug has very slowly gained more strength and endurance. He has started to resume efforts in Africa and the Pacific to foster future business development (thanks to the internet) in hopes that he will ultimately be able to resume work as a consultant once again. There is no income from these efforts as yet, but perhaps late in 2018?
Financial challenges continue unabated. There seems to be modest progress in the effort to grant active duty military status to civilian NCIS Special Agent veterans from the Vietnam War. Doug is the youngest surviving agent from the conflict, at age 73. We are simply trying to hang on, dodging bankruptcy, hoping that the US Government will finally give support to those who served. Please help us now if you possibly can, and share this site with others who may like to assist. Thank You!
