This may be moot now that surgar has blocked action from being taken.I took basic 1972,after live fire[m60] we would clean them in solvent tanks for that purpous,not 5 feet from me were 55 gallon drums that were taped off,do not enter.I have all the symtoms,including type 2 diabeteas and no way to be reembursed.at the time I asked this I was hoping to put a case together.

Yes, I had a close friend who was stationed there in the mid-60's. One time on leave he told me that they were being made to wade in chest-deep water that was filled with Agent Orange. He said directly to me, in anger, that he felt it would kill them. He had a degree in Range Management from New Mexico State University and was quite familiar with the chemistry of defoliants. He died in 1982 at age 41, from Hodgkin's.

I was at the north fort at fort polk from may thru july of 1970.While on bivwac we were sprayed by agent orange to kill the foilage and insects. A huey armed with agent orange was being sprayed by 2 wands under the huey.Any imput would be helpful to me. That stuff kills everything and 40 years later it's killing me!
