Hello my friend! I too need proof of exposure to herbicides while at Takhli. I was TDY out of Homestead AFB, FL in April - June of 1972. I was with the 31st Combat Support Group assigned to Demand Processing/Base Supply Inventory. VA states that my medical records do not show exposure. I guess not because I never went to the hospital or the dispensary. I helped deliver parts as well as 55 gal drums of herbicides with Ryan Stevenson during our shift at night. I have HBP, Type II Diabetes, ED, lost part of my right lung to a 9 mm lump in the upper right corner and the VA says they still need more information because my medical records don't show anything. I need buddy letters from those who remember me stating I worked with you, helped deliver herbicides/parts to flight line/perimeter areas and helped clear the area known as ”Tent City”! When were we told about the ”Drift Zone” from the herbicide spraying? Help me! I am a Warrior as well as the rest who were there and we need to stand together. Congress and the government agencies are still denying Vietnam veterans who served in Thailand the respect they deserve. We hear Thank you, but their actions say differently!
need proof I was exposed to herbicides while stationed at Takhli 72/73. any information will be helpful
I too was at Takhli as part of the reopening in May 1972 and lived in both the hootches and then in Tent City. Worked in Logistics on flight line and spent many hours going in an out of hangars and along flight line. Recently filed for Agent Orange but dont hold out much hope for approval. I fell without a doubt that the tent city area was sprayed with herbacide to get ready for the reopening. Maybe some day the VA will realize this
