Comments: I looking for anyone who has had an AO Claim approved who
was a Field Technician that went to the Hawk Missile
sites to repair their hawk equipment, radars, missile
launchers, etc. My claim was turned down, but I am
appealing.I was based 1968-69 at Niblo Barracks,
Yongsan but was sent to all the DMZ Hawk sites to make
launcher repairs. I believe the 38th Artillery hawk
Brigade should be added to the presumptive approved
unit list. I need all the information that you might be
able to provide.I know AO was sprayed around the
missile sites by ROK troops to kill the vegetation but
they won't admit it. I guess all the grass and weeds
just died.

Comments: My husband was on DMZ zone in l962 or l963. He has
been dead for almost 8 years. He died of MDS which
turned into luekemia. It is where your body quits
making red blood. He also had stroke and a heart
attack. I just now realized he might have been
exposed to agent orange because dioxin is a cause of
MDS. If you knew Samuel Mack Whiteside please let
me know. He was from Hampshire, Tn. and I am going
to investigate the agent orange as I know he was on
DMZ zone. Thank you Linda Whiteside widow of
Samuel ( Mack )Marcus Whiteside Hampshire, Tn.


Keywords: I remember he had a Korean friend he called a Rock
Soldier. THe man sent some cards after he returned
home but can't find his name. I remember him talking
about Freedon Bridge and the DMZ zone and being on

take one of those barrel, turn it on its side on the

compounds until barrel was empty. Within a day all
the foliage was dead (brown/black in color). I'm
having many medical problems ralated the herbicide
exposure. I can't find any articles that show Kunsan

this compound. Thank you

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

I haven't been able to breath through my nose since

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

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.

We were sent to Korea to help protect its people from
attacks by Communist North Korea during the 1960's - We
fought, worked hard and many died in this 2nd Forgotten
War. During this time, the Army used highly toxic
chemicals to defoliate many areas 'for our safety'.
The truth, however, is that the Army poisoned us! Now,
40 years later the Veterans Administration is making us
fight new battles in that same war. And the poisoning
continues today while the VA continues to deny us care
and compensation... Info? pesteward@hotmail.com

Comments: I am avocating for a veteran who was stationed at
Army Service Commaand (ASCOM), South Korea from July
1970 until February 1971. This man suffers numerous
and serious health problems which are very likely due
to exposure to AO at that place and time. Insofar as
the government denies Camp Market and his unit
as 'presumptive', I seek to corroborate his claims by
means of testimonials. Should you have any
information or recollection of the use or disposal of
Agent Orange at ASCOM during the later 1960s through
the first half of the 1970s, please contact me. All
involved in this effort are eager to do whatever we
can to obtain this man the benefits he deserves and
is in desperate need of. Thank you.

for AO claim 27th Jan 2011 and just got my rating 5th
July 2012. I too thought everything was moving slow,
I mean it has been some 42 yearas ago that we got
exposed. I finally got feed up with my regional VA
office could never get any information out of them. I
finally sent a certified letter to Secretary of
Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki, an email to
President Obama. I know for sure that the email was
acted on becuase my regional office called me to say
they got an inquiry from the white house about my
claim. I don't know if all this helped but at least I
got my 2 cents worth of complaning in about the long
delay.

Comments: I was in South Korea stationed at Camp Casey, but was
all over Korea and the DMZ. I got a rare cancer called
Burkitt's lymphoma a few years ago and somehow
survived. I see VA allows this to be service connected
if you were in South Korea to I think 75, why can't
they extend that several more years. I am sure residual
toxins last years.

STATIONED AT CAMP CARROLL

Comments: Good afternoon my fellow vet brothers and sisters,

I recently learned of the story that came out last
year about the Agent Orange being buried at Camp
Carroll in 78. I got there in June of 1981 and left
in June of 82. After stumbling on the story about AO
while looking up health problems that I'm having, I
starting reading everything I could about Camp
Carroll on the web. The stories that where done by TV
station KPHO in AZ. I watched them all. From the
stories I saw and the picture the guys took that
buried the barrels I was shocked. I stopped one of
the video when it showed a Google map of the camp and
where the barrels where said to be buried. What I
found was my motor pool right next to the site and my
units barrack and chow hall about 200 yards from the
site. When I got there in 82 the land arournd our
motor pool looked like it had been bulldozed in the
last year or two. We where told it was rice paddies
that had been covered over. We believed them. I was
assigned to the 46th Trans Co. as a 63 Bravo. We
hauled everything the 8th Army or 2nd ID needed or
wanted. All the way from the harbors in Pusan to the
DMZ and JSA. As a mechanic sometimes I went along
with the convoys in case of a break down. The other
time I was at Carroll working in the motor pool.
Now 30 years later I have trembling in my hands and
skin problems on most of my body and my feet are
covered with bleeding sores that keeps me from being
able to wear shoes at times. This started happening
about 3 years ago and doctors I went to had no idea
what was wrong. I have had turmors rmoved from my
right arm that seen to appear out of nowhere.
Regarless of what the Military says, there is
something evil buried at Camp Carroll. I would love
to hear from anyone that was stationed there or
anywhere else in Korea that is having health
problems. You can contact me at my
email address;

God bless all the vets that have served and active
duty that currently protect this great country.
Please vote in November. Our country and our
childrens future lay in the balance.

I wish you all a happy and safe 4th of July.

It's nothing personal by the VA. Claims are taking
longer now due to the influx of Iraq and Afghanistan

average time for a claim is now two years. Keep your

CONTINUED POSSIBLE EFFECTS 76-77

Unit: B CO. !-32 INF 2/ID

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: It was late 1976, when I developed a unidentified
rash that can on suddenly. I didn't think much of it,
I just spent some time in the Camp Howze Medical Unit.
Was it Aget Orange exposure? It doesn't rely matter
now because I know my life will end before the entire
Agent Orange saga will be known.
I had a nerve test when I first noticed simptoms that
something was wrong. The civilan medical doctors
could not explain where I may have gotten a strange
nerve Neropothy. Basicly, My nerves don't transmit
electricity like a normal person. The medical team of
doctors from 2 diferent hospitals both showed the
same results. They even took a nerve from my foot to
try and deturmin what it was. Back then, I was told
by the doctors that I had about 5 years before I
could no longer walk.
Well, I'm still walking and the slow nerves never
showed any sign that they were better or worse, only
the same. So it was speculated that this had come
from something in my past and had already done it's
damage. I haven't had it checked from that time.
I pass out allot now 2-3 times a year. I hope one day
I just don't wake up because I have seen Cancer
victums and people with heart problems that lingered
in a hospital for long times and that's not how I
want to make my exit. It just looks like end life
torture to me.
My medical records from Camp Howze are gone and I
don't think it would matter much if they were there,
because the effects are not compensateable for the
years 76-77.
I only wanted to post this here before I leave the
country and drop off the map somewhere in Asia.
from the sister unit of the Manchu 1/9 Inf, we have
many more posting vets here on the Korean War Project.
The numbers of posts of Manch vs. Buccaneers is very
offset. HQ of the 2nd ID was at camp Howze before I
got there, but why they moved it is anyones guess. I
only know that the man that was first in charge of
the Camp, was the my Lai massare investigating
officer named Colin Powell. And, no matter what
anyone says, race was a big issue and may have
prompted him to have gotten that asginment.
I'm not implying anything, those are only the pre-
facts of the Buccaneer Bn.

Why do they treat us with so much disrespect. I have
so
many of the herbicide illnesses that I would serve as a
terrific guinea pig. Every time that I heard of a vet

he
had been killed in Vietnam and didn't know it. Now I

type of herbicides being sprayed there or if you have
any information about herbicides being used along the

I have filed a DIC survivor claim with the VA and need
