Comments: My company B.Co 2nd Eng ( Combat ) Bn 2nd Inf Div served on and
along the DMZ starting in April of 1967 being involved in several
assignments including : erecting of 2 Guard Towers, the Erecting
of barrier fencing to run along the south line, clearing of
Mine's along the DMZ. i recall one tower we helped raise was
known a OP DORT or DART? While serving North of the Imjin River
and on the South Tape we were ambushed on 2 different days.we had
grenades hurled in on us followed by small automatic weapons
fire.1 member of my Platoon ( 1st Platoon ) lost his foot after
stepping on a Mine. I can't understand WHY the ( 2nd ENG ( COMBAT
) BN 2nd Inf Div IS NOT LISTED among all the units ( DOD ) and ( VA
) have listed as units qualified for Agent Orange ??? i left
Korea Feb 18, 1968 , missing their MAGIC DATE by 6-7 weeks.
I have Type II Diabetes,Prostate Cancer,Colorectal Cancer and
because i'm outside the Magic Date get stonewalled. ALL VET'S
SHOULD GET EQUAL TREATMENT !!

Comments: Hello my fellow veterans. I am writing this letter that it may

help any of you that where stationed at Camp Carroll or anywhere

in Korea for that matter.







A year ago I found this website and made an entry detailing the
health problems I was having. It was last June. At that time I
was having health problems such as blisters on my feet and hands
and sores that came up on my feet and legs. No doctor I visited
could tell me what it was. The conditions would come and go. A
month ago I was told by the VA doctors that I have colon rectal
cancer after having a colonoscopy. During a CT scan I had
yesterday at the VA hospital in Columbia, SC, they also noticed
spots on my lungs. I am waiting to have a biopsy to see if the 3
spots are cancer. If so the doctor told me that it will be
considered stage 4 cancer. This is the question I had for the
surgeons; There is no history of cancer in my family, I have
never smoke cigarettes. How can I have this cancer along with
all the other health problems I've been experiencing for the
last couple of years? Is the answer to my question to the VA the
fact that I spent a year in Korea at Camp Carroll from June of
1981 until June of 1982 as a 63B with the 46th Transportation
Company. We hauled supplies throughout the country. From Pusan
to the JSA. It is a known fact that Camp Carroll is a depot for
the military in Korea but it is also a proven fact that it is
also a waste dump for the military in Korea and has been for
over 50 years. Agent Orange was stored there years ago and was
also buried there along with 100's of other chemical and toxins.
When I ask the Lead surgeon that the answer from him was Their
could be something to that and we will make a note in you
medical file. I told him that I had been warned against bringing
up the AO connection and that if I did the VA would lose my
records and the next time I came for medical treatment, they
wouldn't have any record of me being in Korea. He told me that's
not the way they do things there. So now I wait for a biopsy to
be done on my lungs and if the cancer I have is Stage 4 and if I
will live to see my 3 year old grand daughter grow up.







My advice to anyone of you that read this or anyone that knows

someone that was stationed at Camp Carroll at anytime in the

last 40 years to have yourself checked out if you can. Don't

wait until that place comes back to haunt you 31 years later

like it may have me.







God bless all my veteran brothers and sisters.

EQUALITY WITH RESPECT TO VETERAN DIOXIN EXPOSURE PRESUMPTION FOR ALL VETERANS

Comments: Equality with respect to Veteran dioxin exposure presumption
for all Veterans

Hi,

Currently only veterans of the Vietnam Conflict are afforded
this in a limited presumption, Boots on Ground legislation, if
they were in the Republic of Vietnam (Served in the Republic of
Vietnam between 1/9/62 and 5/7/75) per the Department of
Veterans Affairs. In fact any current end date for any location
would be invalid as Dioxins stay active for much longer than
the time since the 1962 admitted RVN Agent Orange / Dioxin
start date, current end date is the end date for RVN service,
per the DVA. I was in an exposed unit, one of many and in many
countries, not recognized by the DVA.

That's why I created a petition to The United States House of
Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack
Obama.


We the undersigned petition the US Senate, US Congress and the
President of the United States to enact legislation that makes
ALL veterans have equal presumption of exposure to Dioxins
while in the service of the United States at any location or
unit. We feel that ALL veterans MUST be treated equally with
respect to Dioxin exposure by the US government and Department
of Veterans Affairs.



NOTE: Veterans must also still prove they have a recognized
condition, that maybe caused by Dioxin exposure, during or
after service to get DVA benefits.


Any one 18 can sign.
If effected vet make sure you add your statement in comment
area too!

Pass along to others too!

Thanks!

Comments: If you were in Korea anytime other than the dates listed in the

prepared for your claim to be denied. I am
not saying don't fight it in appeal but the VA goes by the book.



Under the final regulation published today in the
Federal Register, VA will presume herbicide exposure
for any Veteran who served between April 1, 1968, and
Aug. 31, 1971, in a unit determined by VA and the
Department of Defense (DoD) to have operated in an area

packed up in Nov of 70. They moved most of us to Camp
Casey where I was until May of 71.
I went to my local VA office for the first time to have
a preliminary exam. After the blood work etc. a nurse
approached me and said the doctor would like to see me
before I left. He gave forms for an AO exam at anther
clinic. Hats off to my Doctor. I always thought it was
a Vietnam thing.
I have been battling multiple detached retinas both
eyes, cataracts in my early 40's and skin cancer which
I'm still dealing with...
After reading some of the other Vets posts, I feel blessed.
I hope the Gov will eventually do something for all of
us who have medical problems as a result of Agent
Orange exposure.

Good Luck To All

I am submitting an appeal to the VA and they are asking

orange) is the cause of my chronic respiratory disease;
sinusitis and allergic rhinitis.

I haven't been able to breath through my nose since
1967. During my tour in Korea, 1967 - 1968 I served
two tours on the southern border of the Korean DMZ.

I need any and all help! The VA is not denying that
agent orange was used, but they want medical evidence.

operating out of ANGRC/26 and 46s. We were always in
the trees or near the waters or in the Rocks. We
were on the DMZ many times, I do not know about Agent
Orange, but I will tell you all something, the
Koreans did use a killer of some type to fill off the
foliage, I could smell the Kerosene, and I grew up
with this stuff and made several comments about it.
I have had my prostate removed, been married a couple
of times, been depressed, could not hold on to a job
until I was 45 years old. I could have gotten
something over there, but hell, we sprayed tree and
weed killer in the late fiftys and sixtys here in
America. Would it do any good to file a claim, I
doubt it. God Almighty has been real good to me and I
am proud to have served in the Army in Korea, and to
be an American, and I believe the VA is doing
everything they can in this busy world. Comrades

Comments: Look what all you guys need to understand is that AO
was used in a lot more places than they admit to now.
Just because you were in the DMZ or not doesnt mean
you were not exposed. It took forty (40) years for
them to even admit to a small area at certain times and .
What about everyone after that time (68-71) dont you
think they may have issues; this is way before
bottled water. If you were in Korea you drank the
water and showered in it.

Is there anyone who knows anything about Agent Orange
in the 70s???

Why are the standards different for Korea than
Vietnam? Just tell the VA you once spend a minute in
Vietnam and you are sick you just proved your Agent
Orange case. Why is it so much harder for Korea???

I am looking for anyone who was stationed on a Hawk
Site that may have issues now. If that site was ever
sprayed it wont much matter when you were there.
