Harold, The below clip was taken from the Holloman AFB link I posted for you. I think it pretty much sums it up that you were more likely than not to have been deployed at Takhli during that 1972 time period. "the entire wing" wow! huge deployment.
"On 4 May 1972, after North Vietnam invaded South Vietnam, the entire wing, except for a rear echelon that remained to run Holloman, deployed at Takhli RTAFB, Thailand. Conducted combat operations in Southeast Asia"
Good luck with this. I have been doing my research and found that VA almost automatically turns you down unless you can prove you were in Vietnam. These guys and gals do have many things posted that might help you though. The information about drift zones for spraying on Thailand bases, there are several maps posted on the site and from what I hear buddy letters from someone there when you were really helps.
I just resubmitted my claim, not an appeal and will see how it goes. What is amazing is how many win after it goes to the administrative judge. The bad thing is it takes several years.
