Takhli RTAFB - Land of the King Cobra
Number of Thailand claims approved for Herbicides/AO

Up until 2010, the VA did not keep seperate records on agent orange claims by country. They were all grouped together. Since 2010 when the VA starting keeping seperate records by countries, there were 25,000 Herbicide/AO first time claims filed for Thailand Vets up until the end of 2015. 2016 have not been tallied. Only 5000 claims were approved. 80 percent of the Thai claims were disapproved on first try. It is so important to do your homework on filing a claim. Unless you were a MP working on the perimeter, you better have tons of info/proof on your duty on/near the perimeter. With a 20 approval rate, the VA is looking for alot of proof to be approved. This info was provided on the Udorn Research Group by A Vet who requested this info during his appeal.
