I will try to post 6 messages concerning the shipment and arrival of Agent Orange and Agent Blue from Saigon RVN to Republic of Korea. I do not have a full list of the units at that location (Camp Seattle) as of yet but at least the following units were there on that date (3/20/1968). 1st Base Post Office CCA (I think this means Container Control Activity) a detachment of Co A, 728th MP Co. Hq & Hq Co, Inchon Petroleum Depot 503rd MP Detachment HQ detachment 202nd Transportation BN there was also a TMD unit there (household goods) and probably others I haven't uncovered The DoD is at present unsure of the location or route that the shipment took from there to "forward locations near the DMZ" where it arrived on 10 April 1968. I suspect it came to USA ASCOM Depot at Bupyeong as all supplies in the northern half of Korea did. These documents were acquired under a Freedom of Information Act request to Eighth US Army CG. This was perhaps 2% of what I requested (didn't even really ask for these) but this is part of what they sent I think to attempt to sidestep what I really asked for. The denial is under appeal. Robert McNamara, then Secretary of Defense, once said in relation to interview, debates, and speaches "Never answer the question asked, instead answer the question you wished would have been asked." Anyway, hope these help someone. f600.pdf f100.pdf f200.pdf f300.pdf f400.pdf f500.pdf
