Looking for anyone with information about agent orange or other herbicides that may have been stored at Ft Polk and possibly attempts at cleaning the areas up during 1987. My ex-husband was a MP stationed there and had to go into a restricted area on base during that time. All that he could tell me about the op was that "they were protecting the public from Hazardous waste while guys cleaned up some chemical". He would come home with a very toxic smell on his clothes at the end of the day and most times, I would have him change clothes before entering our house. His uniform was then put into the washer immediately. We were both serving there, and I was pregnant at the time. I need to know because of health problems that may be related to my time there. Thank you for any information .
