Phoenix, AZ, USA – October 22, 2020 – Agent Orange Broken DNA / The Enemy Within tells the story of Frank Martinez and his family. As a Vietnam Veteran, Frank was saturated with Agent Orange, and fairly soon, upon his return to the US, he started having health problems. Two generations later, two daughters and two grandchildren have rare diseases that they believe in having been caused by Frank’s exposure. The book is set to be released on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2020.
“Through all of this, I am proud to be an American and will still say it was an honor to fight for this great country to keep our freedom,” says Frank Martinez. “There is no greater place to be on the face of the earth. Now my journey in this borrowed physical body is in its final stage, and soon I will return to be with that power greater than me.”
When asked how she will celebrate the release of the book, author and wife of Frank, Maryam Martinez, explains that “sharing this awareness is my celebration, as I move forward to collaborate with other veterans and their families to share their stories as well.”
“As a publisher, I am committed to bringing books to the world that inspire by sharing stories of strength, courage, determination, and love,” explains the founder of Lemonade Legend, Michelle Faust. “These stories provide education and awareness intended to help and hope to our readers. Maryam Martinez wrote this book to share her family’s journey through the horrific medical aftermath of her husband’s exposure to Agent Orange. Her ultimate message is of triumph through love and family. She hopes to help other families of veterans understand why they may have unexplained illnesses or rare diseases in their families.”
