The hootch was so close it was tough to sleep sometimes with the pungent herbicide odor at night. It stank so bad we used to go to the NCO club and sleep in a chair (and one time on the pool table). As a retired environmental engineer I wish i knew about toxicology back then. There are so many sick and dead. I cannot beleive VA limits claims to only those WORKING on the perimeter and high spray areas.
I'll bet even the bases water supply (or dermal contact with surface water runoff) was a contributing factor.
