SGTAgent Orange Korea - SHAFT: Vet asks where to find list of units exposed to Agent Orange

Image compliments Rich Preston, Viet vet

Dear Sgt Shaft:

Where can I find a list of units presumed exposed to Agent Orange while in service in Korea? Thanks

Dear Larry:

Veterans who served in a unit in or near the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) anytime between April 1, 1968, and Aug. 31, 1971, and who have a disease VA recognizes as associated with Agent Orange exposure are presumed to have been exposed to herbicides. These veterans do not have to show they were exposed to Agent Orange to get disability compensation for these diseases.

My husband served in Oijambu, Korea. His battalion went on maneuvers in the D.M.Z. He has ischemic heart disease, C.O.P.D., Tinnitus, High Blood pressure, & severe depression. His application was stamped DENIED, because the base camp was 26 miles from the D.M.Z.We are appealing the decision with the help of the D.A.V.
