Thank you for posting the link to help our wonderful Veterans with herbicide exposure.
It is so sad that they have to struggle so hard to get their benefits after going oversea's , some leaving their families behind and then not being able to count on health benefits after they begin to come down with various and multiple illnesses at one time.
Your statement is true for all of our Thailand veterans. The requirements for our Thailand veterans are certainly different from the requirements when filing a claim for Vietnam.
It is my personal belief that regardless of where you were.. If herbicides were used at all .. unless you were are like the bubble boy.. inside an airtight bubble... then you more than likely breath it in...
I know that we are suffering with our economy.. So I can only assume that this is the reason why they will not recognize our Veterans who were in SEA during the time dangerous herbicides were used.
Sometimes, although our veterans show proof that their job duties were near the perimeter, they are still requiring more detailed information before they will consider the claims.
Most of our military guards, augmentee and dog handlers will automatically be approved.. So for that I am grateful.
