    If you served in Vietnam aboard any ship Just type in the name and year put old blue water and a ships log might come up with a chart of the times it entered the 12 mile or less off the coast of Vietnam.

    the problem is many navy personal were not exposed to agent orange but were exposed to dioxin due to ship board fires.

    the navy ships had many things treated with PCBs as a fire ******ent and when exposed to fire they put off a dioxin known as PCDD that was as toxic as TCDD found in agent orange.

    i have been trying to contact some vets from the USS Forrestal (CV-59)to tell them they were most likely exposed to PCDD from there fire not TCDD from the ships distillation plant.

    Introduction to blue water navy carrier reports.
    This shows when the carriers were within the 12 mile zone. I would suggest if you are putting in a clam for agent orange to copy your ships log and take it with you.

    Wish my uncle could have got it before he passed away this year. He was diagnosed with it, but got no benefits via the VA, or compensation of any kind regarding a bio agent causing cancer and respiratory diseases. Sucks too. He fought it hard for 5 years, everytime his family thought he was on his death bed, he’d be up and at them the next morning.

    Some were too busy going on an Apologetic World Wide Tour for being so mean of a country.

    I'm sorry to hear about your Uncle's passing, and I both Thank him and Salute him for his service. I have a neighbor just up the street that was in Nam in the Army. He has cancer that was brought on by agent orange. All these Vets that have suffered from this should be taken care of by the very same Government and Country that they were serving.
