Comments: i was onboard from 69 to 73. Was MM2 in R-Division. I'm
concerned about the latest list of ships [that doesn't include
the Chandler] that are presumed to have been exsposed to agent
orange. while I was on board, we never docked in Viet Nam, only
anchored due to a 15 minute standby to get underway at all
times. i could have shot a BB gun and hit the shores of Viet
Nam. the issue is no benefits for the many listd illnesses
because the Chandler didn't dock!!
