Please [SHARE] this with everyone you know and in your circles:

Equality with respect to Veteran dioxin exposure presumption for all Veterans. Many are seniors, some are offspring and spouses, and too many have already died or will die younger than they should! Finish the wars we have at home with the DVA! The DVA needs to live up to its published mission statement.

Dioxins are from Agent Orange / Rainbow - Tactical Herbicides, some PCB's and insecticides. They were used to defoliate / defend perimeter fence lines around bases and TAC sites, prevent fires, hydraulic fluids, electrical equipment, cleaning fluids and to control insects / pests. Currently many vets are not getting these benefits as many exposed units are not listed for many locations, many countries; poor, destroyed, classified and lost records (per DOD). Also found in soil and well water at many U.S. bases. Dioxin is one cause of many medical conditions. The DVA acts like the DOD said all other units not exposed. In many locations and time frames the DVA assumes that units were not exposed or that the vet served there, when the DOD only fails to find the data that confirms exposure or that service occurred, a low priority for the DOD and due poor, lost, classified and missing decades old records.

If an effected vet make sure you add your statement in comment area too!

I am hoping that someone in DC realizes that if this is done they would not have to admit to any specific US or other location being contaminated and also not release any classified data, while still enabling vets their decades overdue and just benefits. They should only then need to prove they are a vet, spouse or offspring and have a recognized medical condition(s) during the decades contamination occurred. Remember that most vets were at several locations between Basic, AIT to discharge time. Overseas duty also meant going through a couple locations and being on some form of military travel that may have been contaminated somewhere.

I was in D 2/71st 38th ADA HAWK 1971 on defoliated Tac2 Site 34 (about 10 mi from DMZ)(I saw sprayed) and was denied, DVA used my Camp Red Cloud APO as being too far at 20 mi. for “NEAR the DMZ”. In two other appeals the DOD and VA conceded Camp Red Cloud “NEAR the DMZ”?
