Howard, you will be real lucky to find anyone that can verify your augmentee duty. You were a delivery driver, correct. That placed you on the flight line at Takhli. You delivered parts to the bomb dump and the trimpad, Correct. Do you have all (ALL) of your military records and military medical records and all of your VA and civilian medical records, Correct. Have you located anyone that can write buddy letters, yes, correct. Do you have a performance report from Takhli, Yes. The APR will provides names of people that can write buddy letters. Did you ever go to the dispensary at Takhli? Is that in your medical records? Did you ever make any calls from the MARS station? That was in the drift zone for herbicides.
Did you ever use the recreational field at Takhli? That was in the drift zone.
You need maps, buddy letters and any other proof that you were near the perimeter. Go on facebook and look up Sandy Lotton Miles. Ask her for help. She proved augmentee duty and that her husband worked on the active runway (crash recovery), 100 %. Love to help you. If you can answer the above question as yes. Then provide that information to the VA and you might stand a chance for approval. You can call me anytime. Send me your E-mail and I will send you my number.
