Re: Important AO-Herbice Document
I was the Deputy Fire Chief From Jun 1972 Msgt Scott Ramsey was the Fire Chief. I was deputy for around 6-7 months till CMsgt Billy Bell came on board which moved me back to Assitant Fire. Yes we did have Fire in the Outer Perimeter. I was directly involved in 3 of them . One was and actual spray tanker unit That The Chief and I Put with 100lb dry chem. unit we had in the back of the Chiefs trunk. The 530 from station responded from Station 2 and couple of other units from Crash station. This is the one where six Thai works were burned severely along with the GI running the operation. All six Thai works died with in 2 week. The GI was flown to the Philippines. Never heard if he made it for sure rumor said no!! Another one close to the POL storage tanks on southeast side of Runway and the other one was between the CIA facility and bomb dump. There were a few others but I really can't remember the exact locations as I was not on duty at the time. Your Name rings a bell but I just can't place the face. I to have issues. Diabetes and Neurophty since around 1982 diagnosed in 1985. I hope this helps you out!!

Looking for any Fire Protection Specialist's to write letters supporting documentation that anyone who worked the flight line was clearly exposed in the spray and drift zones when Agent Orange/herbicides were sprayed, most notably the area between the runway and flight line where color picture maps clearly show dead vegetation. Need documentation that firefighters did fight grass fires around the base perimeter. Fighting lower extremity peripheral neuropathy for 45-years. Help.
