I'm helping my dad, James Harvey (aka Jim, Jimmy) with his benefits claim. He was an aircraft electrician (42350) at Takhli with the 355th (FLD?) Maint SQ PACAF. I believe he left in Aug. '68. (I'm having trouble reading the DD214). His Uniform Military Personnel Record says he was in SEA, but nothing about RTAB. He's from WV and it looks like he went to school at Chanute in '61.
He got a letter today saying he needs to provide more information - basically proving he was in an area w/ exposure. I started researching and figured out this probably won't be a slam dunk. He has Parkinson's and heart disease.
I'll show him the site tomorrow - but thought I would reach out an see if anyone remembers him and/or was at Takhli the same time. I'm thinking he's going to need buddy letters? I will also try to get more extensive records and supporting docs.
Thank you all for your service and support here on this site - I've been googling for hours and this message board is amazing. - Kim N.
