Ao Award Elgin Afb Ba 2012

Question

In Part:

"The Veteran claimed he worked on C-123 planes which he believed were spraying defoliant to clear out vegetation along power lines; he learned this information from conversations with the flight crew.  He cleaned out the spray nozzles of the planes by blowing on them with his mouth sometimes.  He noted a performance report stated that he coped with a variety of problems maintaining aircraft assigned to the base as well as transient aircraft.  

The Veteran's testimony at the April 2012 Board hearing shows that the Veteran's statements continued to be consistent.  He stated that he worked on planes (C 123s) that were tested at his base which he believed were used for spraying vegetation in Vietnam.  (Transcript, p 6.)  The Veteran related in detail spray apparatuses that were on these planes and said he cleaned them.  (Transcript, pp 6-7.)  He also said he had been on insulin for his diabetes mellitus and that he had open heart surgery in 1999 or 2000.  (Transcript, p

Eglin AFB from December 1968 to November 1971.

Hello Berta,,,,,, That a girl...... now we have another AO in the CONUS . Elgin Air Force Base , Florida.

Thank you Berta for your hard work and study. We have another place now ARCHIVED here at Hadit.com and the list keeps on growing.

When you look at the list say back in 2006 and 2007, there was hardly anyplace other than Vietnam. Now with the Awards coming in from so many places , the Agent Orange list just grows and grows and grows. It now is leaving the Veteran the option to study for the Medical connection and then finding evdence and proof that AO was there at the location , opens the courts up to use the Benefit of a Doubt Rule. Filing direct exposure claims but with the presumptive diseases list to link that for the Veteran and his claim process to be awarded in the end has now been proven to be effective in the legal arena.

Berta , it was not that long ago and we remember how many denials there were in AO claims. Not so now but unfortunately the age of the Veterans winning means not a great number left so time is running out.

When we see the list growing for the AO locations we also see the strong legal treaties and presentation of the claims getting better and more awards due to proper presentations.

Thanks again Berta and we now have another Agent Orange location to the long list.

NEVER GIVE UP . God Bless, C.C.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
