I worked on the flight line at Takhli in 1967 & 1968. The veterans affairs recently informed me that I may have come in contact with agent orange so my battle is just beginning. Since my service days I've had blurred vision episodes sometimes followed by a complete loss of memory for hours at a time. I've developed diabetes and high blood pressure. I've had MRI's completed by five different hospitals over the years and none could identify the cause. I never suspected it could be exposure to herbicides since I just recently learned that they were used at Takhli. I sincerely hope that all military personnel who worked out on the flight line or around the perimeter of that base is treated fairly. I hope the wind wasn't blowing when they were spraying. I spent my life in construction as a supervisor for the most part and I can assure you the wind effects all spraying. One incident was when our crew sprayed paint on steel with a slight breeze blowing. Our company had to pay for hundreds of cars that needed to be cleaned for blocks.
