Faucy-Washington: Help for veterans with Parkinson’s

Jack Sloan began serving his country in the U.S. Army infantry after graduating from West Point in 1956. He deployed to Vietnam in 1967. He was one of more than 2.7 million military service personnel who served in Vietnam.

Jack’s tour was cut short due to a serious combat injury in June 1968; he was shot in the back.
