He and my momma had been trying to get his benefits for over a year before he passed away, and my momma has been trying ever since. She got a letter from the VA stating that all benefits have been denied yet again. My dad's name was David Bryant from Holly Grove, AR. It states he was a SP5, I am not military so I only know what I have read online. My dad was diagnosed with hairy cell leukemia which has been linked to contact with agent orange. I am not sure where this will lead me but any information would be greatly appreciate your time. On his DD214 is has CO C USASTRATCOM LL BN North eighth army APO 96301. It also states in station or installation at which effected is FORT Lewis Washington. I have no clue about what this means.

Comments: A year ago I filed an Agent Orange Claim. I was in Korea 1968 to Feb.1969. We submitted all the necessary documents,pictures,buddy statement,letters,medical records etc. Claim was denied in December stating I did not serve in Nam. They made the mistake of assuming I was there instead of reading all the evidence and documents. We have now filed for a correction and a DRO. When we spoke with the local VA County rep his response was oh this will take a long time a very long time. This was their mistake, it should be settled within weeks, I don't understand the logic or process behind this. Has anyone out there had to deal with a similar situation? . I served on the DMZ, a radio site we referred to as Nakta. My service records show that I DID serve there. Any information or help would be appreciated. You can email me or call. Good Luck to all of you fighting for what we deserve.

AGENT ORANGE USE IN KOREA EARLY AS 1967

PAUL MURRAY wrote on March 5, 2016


City and State:

Unit: HHC 3RD BDE, 2ND INF DIV

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: Served with HHC 3rd, Bde 2nd Inf Div Dec 1966 - Dec 1967

Forwarded below is an E-mail I sent to a fellow GI I served with in the 2nd Inf Div during 1967.

The link for the video report Toxic Secrets which documents AO disposal in Korea is:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XpyE8zNX14

I hope this may be of help to my fellow vets in their struggles to substantiate AO claims with the VA.

My E-mail follows:

I wish you well with your VFW rep meeting.

Moons, it would be great if your VFW rep would agree to watch the entire 35 minute video, but I'm guessing based on his/her time constraints that would be unlikely during a face-to-face meeting.

So, I found several key points in the video I hope may be helpful for those filing VA claims and you might be able to view them with your VFW rep on your laptop at your meeting.

I'm detailing them below with the time stamps on the video so you'll be able to quickly reference and hopefully be able to view them during your visit with the rep:

1) Starting at just after the 24:00 point on the video Steven House and Richard Travis, then EMs talk of being tasked to bury approximately 250 55-gallon drums of agent orange at a Camp Carroll South Korea dump site in 1978. Travis identifies the barrels as containing agent orance and carrying 1967 dates on them. Pertinent info runs several minutes.

2) Starting at about 32:00 Steve House provides info that agent orange together with other toxic chemicals had been dumped at Camp Carroll for a number of years prior to 1978. The toxic chemicals, including possibly agent orange, he mentioned could have been used at any point anywhere in South Korea including the locations and during the time you served there.

The point of this E-mail is that agent orange barrels with 1967 dates on them were in Korea.

Therefore, it's entirely possible and more than likely agent orange would have been used in the 2nd Infantry Division's 3rd Brigade sector during 1967.

City and State: SALINAS CA

Unit: 2/76 ARTY, 6/80 ARTY

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: Does any one have this Document from the Department of Defense? If so please send
me a copy.

The Defense Department's list of exposed units adds that
field artillery, signal, and engineer troops were also sent
into the DMZ as support personnel during the time of the
confirmed use of Agent Orange. The Department did not
estimate how many artillery troops served at the DMZ. Thus,
the Department has conceded that unnamed and uncounted
artillery support troops assisted and augmented the combat
infantry units serving in the defoliation areas. This is
significant because the Veteran's official personnel file
(OPF) reflects that he served in a support role, that of
clerk-typist, with his artillery unit, located, or at least
headquartered, some 7 miles away, during the time that Agent
Orange was used in South Korea.

Because the Army has conceded that unlisted field artillery troops were also
exposed to Agent Orange while serving as support personnel, the evidence for
presumed Agent Orange exposure in this case is at least in relative equipoise and
the reasonable doubt
doctrine is invoked.

Comments: Hi again,
Well, haven't filed yet but have looking through the posts. It seems that 2/76 at Camp St Barbara is not on any list for AO. The guide lines are many, but one is duty at the Imjin River. Not sure how many remember the times we spent up there on Operational Readiness exercises, 'fast paces', etc. I guess I need statements from others who were there at the same time I was (68-70). Gee, do you think my photos of the Imjin are evidence? How about pictures of those ROK suicide tanks overlooking the Imjin? The ones dug into the hills with no treads. Yup, i've got the pics. How about my pictures of our whole area with nary a tree or bush in sight? What do they want?
I guess i'll find out when the claim (diabetes) is denied.

Comments: Hello all
I am looking for anyone who can write a 'buddy statement' concerning our movements during 'fast pace' operations up to the Imjin River. 2/76 is not listed under the DoD list of units operating near the DMZ for inclusion in AO filings. I know we were up there many times during my time with the 2/76.
2/76 is not included even though we were about 6 miles north of Cp Casey and the same distance from the Imjin as they were. I realize the 7thID did DMZ patrols and do not want to downplay their duties, but we were up there also.
I would like to file a claim for diabeties and need the info from anyone who has completed a claim.
Thanks
Jay

Comments: Served with HHC 3rd Bde 2nd Inf Div throughout 1967.

Just found a Phoenix AZ TV station expose on AO done in 2012. Link for video is below.

It details use and insanely cavalier disposal of AO and other toxic chemicals in South Korea over many years. This and the lies, lost files, lost and paperwork, etc. that covered up AO use and disposal in South Korea for only God knows how long and how early.

The video shines a light on the mountain of lies the VA relies on to deny AO claims.

Please invest the time to watch the video then share it with VA employees stringing your AO claim out when you meet them face to face then share it with other vets filing such claims.

If you're not able to open the link to view the video do a Google search for Toxic Secrets 2012. The video is approx 35 min long

Comments: I served in the 2/8 field artillery 84-85 as well as team spirit in 83 and 86. I
also had the opportunity to serve at 4p1 and 4p3 in a cohort unit. I was seeking to
reconnect with any of my old buddies as well as anyone who served in these areas
who may has ended up with agent orange type of illness. I contracted carcinoid
cancer in my small intestine which has caused many problems for me. I know this
wasn't within the time frame that the VA mandated , but I can't help but wonder if
it isn't related since I did spend alot of time on the DMZ digging fox holes and
sleeping on the ground. If there's anyone else who has served during this time
frame and area and who has had similar problems please let me know.Thanks for your
service, 2ND TO NONE

Comments: I served in Korea with the 2nd Bn.9th Inf. (Mechanized) of the 2nd Infantry Division near and in the DMZ from June 1966 through July 1967, a total of 13 months. I was friends with Lt. Bishop Getman, Inf.,from Connecticut. I also was an aquaintance of Lt Deering (CO, HHC); Lt Dane (Commo. Pltn.). I was under the command of CPT Rosewater the CO of the Medical PLT and BN Surgeon.

Since my service, I have gradually had more and more problems with my feet and lower legs---requiring special shoes, a quadcane to keep my compromized balance. Also, I need special medications for the pain and inability to sleep well. The skin on my lower legs is mottled, paper thin and very painfu.

I need help for verification purposes to enable me to obtain a service connected disability VA pension.

Comments: I was on the Korean DMZ from Oct 1968 thru Dec 1969. The first 2 months i was used to go work on an underground concrete bunker system called PHASE LINE PAPA I have heart disease and other problems caused by Agent Orange. I was first denied by the VA but when I proved that I worked on this project I was approved 60% in just 2 months. There was a number of units that were used to work on this project so if your unit was one of these and you went north to work on this project request your units participation and FILE CLAIM FOR AO exposure. If denied do not file appeal this has a 3 year window, file a reconsideration with new information the VA must react to this with in just a few months If i can help you please contact me.

Comments: I was in Korea and then went to Viet Nam. I had no health problems when I enlisted. After returning home I returned to work. A few years ago I was told by my doctor that I had acquired a lung infection, but he could not tell me what was causing it. It has gotten worse. It never goes away. Now my lungs swell so bad the cut off the oxygen to my brain and I just pass out. The VA needs info on this. Does anyone have or had this problem? I was all around where Agent Orange was used. I had even touched it with my hands where it lay on our building. Please help me.

Comments: I am Bob Haynes and hopefully Michael Marcum was talking about me on his post as being helped with his claim.
I have helped many Korea Cold War/DMZ veterans with their claims and a lot of them have been approved. I have compiled a lot of information on AO and subsequent claims and will help you. I will ONLY do this via email as there is just too much documentation to copy and mail out...and to expensive. Know that if you are; outside the presumptive dates, presumptive units or presumptive areas it will be more difficult but not impossible!
Someone mentioned below about having a reunion. Our 2 ID Association will hold our 94th annual reunion this September 22-26 in San Antonio, TX and any 2 ID veteran is invited with guests. We set aside an hour and a half for a meeting for Cold War/DMZ veterans and AO is always the main topic. One of our members places a column in our every other month newsletter on AO issues related to Korea Cold War/DMZ veterans. Contact me for more info on AO claims and our annual reunions. We do have 2 IDA Branches around the country for local reunions!!! We are also on FaceBook and our web site is 2ida.org Second to None! Bob Haynes

on the dmz in Korea. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who was there in
the 1960's. He told me numerous time that when the troops got off the plane in
Korea that every other soldier received a shot in their tongue. If anyone
remembers this, please get in touch with me.

Comments: I am looking for anyone that remembers going on money runs from the 21st Finance in ASCOM from May 1968 - June 1969. We would travel to Seoul, Camp Casey to the north and, Inchon to the south and other camps distributing MPC and WON. I feel I was exposed to Agent Orange on these money runs. Agent Orange was also said to be stored at ASCOM.

Anyone who can remember these money runs please help if possible. I have had prostate cancer.

Thanks
