Re: exposure to agent orange
Lou, please e-mail me the map. I plan on going to my Senator's and Congressman's Office with the maps and all of the information that I can gather to lobby for a change to the perimeter wording. The folks that wrote these words have no idea of what the base's layout looked like. I believe our only chance for change is to provide the correct information to those who have the power to make changes. Write or visit you Senator's and Congressman's office. Provide them with evidence of where we lived, dined etc. etc. on the base and how close we were to the perimeter. The folks who wrote the regulations and who are evaluating our claims are from a different generation and do not necessarily understand our problems. I served at Takhli, Ubon and Korate. Once I get the Ariel View maps, I will be willing to write a letter stating how close we were to the perimeter of these bases. We all have proof of our assignments at these locations(bases), therefore we should only need a letter from each of the thousands of us who were there to try and prove our case. My best guess is that about 200,000 to 250,000 Thousand of us served in Thailand. If we are going to get justice, then we must band together and request a review of the regulations governing our service Thailand. Is there a lobbing organization out there that can write to?
