January 27, 2020
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) released in January 2020 an updated Department of Defense (DOD) list of locations outside of Vietnam where tactical herbicides were used, tested or stored by the United States military.
DOD conducted a thorough review of research, reports and government publications in response to a November 2018 Government Accountability Office report.
The updated list includes Agents Orange, Pink, Green, Purple, Blue and White and other chemicals and will be updated as verifiable information becomes available.
Veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange or other herbicides during service may be eligible for a variety of VA benefits, including an Agent Orange Registry health exam, health care and disability compensation for diseases associated with exposure. Their dependents and survivors also may be eligible for benefits.

I served at Clark Air Base during the Vietnam conflict with 5th TAC. We serviced all the generators that were used in Nam. The generators came to us covered in Agent Orange, the upper up's called it defoilent and said to "air nozzle it off." I worked in the shop for almost a year to repair them, the rest of the time I spent in South Korea at various bases.

There is never any mention about SHAD that I was involved in 1965 winter.

I have been told that I have liver problems but have never been examined for Agent Orange exposer. Years that I served in the Army and Marine Corps. 1965 through 1994.. US Army guard summer camps beginning in 1972 through 1992.. I also traveled to Dugway many other time from training.

"No herbicide was sprayed in Thailand." This is the most non-nonsensical bs statement I've read in my adult life. I was there in Jan '67 and helped carve the future U-tapao AFB and bomb ordinance pads out of the jungle. I and a few others, watched and were doused with the chemicals by the AF prop cargo planes as we cleared the foliage to install a portable landing strip for the B-52 which arrived months later. This was also long before the AF Sentries and their dogs, experienced any Agent Orange herbicide. Yet, they are they only one's eligible.

New list for storage and testing is not a full list. It should reflect where AO was stored, tested , TRANSPORTED, and USED. That would be an all inclusive list. This is like spoon feeding when Veterans should be getting the full list. The government has all the info from day one, but here we are, still being fed a spoonful at a time.

It's good to see the list expanding but interesting that Ft. Mac isn't on the list.
