Lou, thanks for the reply. Getting my pay records did not come to mind. I did receive like $55 a few months after I had settled into the old wooden hooches. The money was for my stop in Saigon (combat pay). As I understand this deal, later on guys also got the money if your flight flew over vn. As for as records go I did get my records and my medical records. Looking over them is a joke, there is not much there. And nothing I can see about my stop in vn. The vso I talked with made me feel like I didn't deserve to file a claim. He made some statement abut if I had a purple heart, cib or combat patch I could file. So here it is two years later and my health is not so great. I do have a buddy that remembers me leaving Taiwan but can not say for sure that my flight went to vn. I'm not saying that ao is the reason for my cancer. But we were around a lot of aircraft that flew all around SEA. That ac could have been into ao in vn and on the ramp in Takhli a few hours later. The rain could have washed the crap off the ac, down the ditch to where they washed our shorts and food. Who knows? What is Hass vs nickelson about? thanks for the reply, take care
