With Royal Thai, JSRRC will say tactical herbicides were only used early in the Vietnam era (Leading one to conclude there's a contradiction in VAs Thai eligibility dates).

Thai eligibility is based on massive use of commercial herbicides; JSRRC's statement only introduces a 'red herring' into a veteran's claim. (actually based on the principle of Nehmer, if you are familiar with the decision)

Try to always speak in 'herbicide' exposure, so as not to unwittingly help the deniers.

"(actually based on the principle of Nehmer, if you are familiar with the decision) "

 I am very familiar with the multiple Nehmer decisions since the first one in 1991.

Nehmer only covers incountry Vietnam veterans based on presumption.

It covers their surviving spouses as well. I am a Nehmer claimant.

All other vets who have been awarded for AO disabilities elsewhere than  Vietnam,have to prove direct exposure to AO.

To add -some JSRRC clown put out a false statement here:

that might have denied MANY Thailand Vet claims erroneously.

We deal with idiots at every level.

Since this citation states he was at Fort McClellan why can't the rest be approved also? Especially with some of the same diseases like DM2

All of the Thailand and CONUS awards for AO so far have involved proof of direct exposure to Agent Orange.

I know 2 of those veterans and their research and relentless quest for proof was what turned their claims around.

The VA Thailand directive (prepared by VA due to the Thailand vet's research) reflects how an MOS along with proof of AO usage on a base perimeter can prove direct AO exposure.

It is highly likely that this statement from the decision :

“the DoD certification leaves open the possibility that herbicides may have been used in the manner described by the Veteran, to clear brush and weeds around the Tiger Village. Both the Veteran and his direct supervisor have stated that he was exposed to herbicides when photographing a training exercise. The basis for the supervisor's knowledge is unknown, but the Veteran relies upon reports made to him at the time by the officer in charge of the exercise, who told him Agent Orange had just been sprayed and they should stay out of certain areas.”

and the description of his close proximity to the “Tiger Village” would have exposed him to AO due to his MOS.
