  1. Greeting s Ms.Berta, Thank you, my father did not have a file for AO, it was for other claims. Truthfully, I do not think I will be successful in any monetary claim and that's why I uploaded the documents I came across online in hopes someone else may benefit by there use with their claims. I did submit a AF FOIA request in regards to my fathers AF Specialty and its function at chanute AFB. Thank you enjoy your day,
  2. Hello Ms.Berta, You used a couple of acronyms I'm not familiar with, my father was remarried and his wife had passed year prior. So I handled his burial through the VA, as he passed in warrior walk. He was at chanute AFB, Rantoul, Illinois, Lackland AFB TX MPLS and entered at AFEES FT Hamilton NY 71. His specialty number was 92010-Aircrew Pret Hlpr . He did have some claims that where denied, I plan to resubmit before the end of Feb-Mar 2019. He passed march 26, 2018, so it will be no later than prior to the anniversary of his passing. In addition, since up loading the #216842172-AF-Memo-1-30-79 I did a google search for additional verification of Charles E. Thalken, Lt Col USAF VC, Chief, Environmental Assessment Branch and on page 70-73 of the A129254 Nov 29, 1979 Veterinary claims gives his opinion and AF credentials see: https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a129254.pdf It seems Thalken in his position in the AF, was a leading duty expert so to speak. Thank you.
  3. Hello, I am just reading your post, but the below AF Memo 1.30.79 was uploaded by the Washington Bureau and I believe is the missing link. My father was station at Chanute AFB and passed away last year from a type of Cancer. I have requested through AF FOIA information on Chanute and Agent Orange from on or about 1968-1980, the reply of course denied its use at anytime. I followed up, by providing them with a copy of this memo and advise the information was available and keep looking https://www.scribd.com/document/216842172/AF-Memo-1-30-79
