Takhli RTAFB - Land of the King Cobra
Re: Agent Orange in Takhli
I don't understand the lack of photos or comments from those who did the spraying on the perimeter at Takhli. I was with the 355th Security Police Sq during 1969. Somewhere in the mid term of my tour there approx 100ft of the outer perimeter was stripped bare. I did not witness how but thereafter the area was like the infield of a baseball diamond. Nothing but fine dirt. I patroled this area via jeep and obviously it created a mini dust storm whenever I did. It was barren for the remainder of my stay there. In 1996 I was diagnosed with early onset aggresive stage two prostate cancer. With the help of Mayo Clinic, surgery and radiation I am still here but have lingering side effects. As the doc said the cure does not come without consequences. I just don't get how it was so obvious but we hear so little from people that had to see the same thing or actually participated in stripping the area. Where are the pictures??? I will contact my representatives in support of HR 6562 but am frustrated by other Takhli Vets who must be out there that saw or know something.
