Join us for this show as James is an excellent speaker and is very active helping veterans.

The show was good and I am glad Jerrel mentioned the second AO award due to exposure to AO at Johnston Atoll.

This is James Cripp’s AO Fort Gordon award.

It does not come close to his attempts to prove his case, as he detailed in past radio shows here.

Medical opinions as well as extensive evidence and his MOS all supported his claim.

This veteran ( I am sure he was the same vet on last night’s radio show,with James),

due to his MOS was exposed to AO at Fort McClelland ‘s “Tiger Village”.

He had medical opinion’s as well as statement from his inservice ‘supervisor’ to support his claim.

Both of these veterans, as well as other vets who have proven their disabilitiy(ies) were due to AO exposure outside of Vietnam,  proved they had Direct exposure to the AO, by virtue of their MOS, with no other etiology for their disabilities, but for that exposure.

 

The Special Housing grants ( which have changed recently) as well as the Adaptive auto grants they spoke of are explained at the VA web site and surely are searchable here.

Yes he does.

This is the DOD list of AO testing,use, storage etc issued many years ago:

http://www.publichealth.va.gov/docs/agentorange/dod_herbicides_outside_vietnam.pdf

Some vets (certainly James as well as Kurt Priessman) used this info from DOD to support their claims.

Not all places AO was used is on the list, and in every case except for Korea and Thailand Regulations (and the AO ships list) the veteran MUST prove their direct exposure.

Some MOS's by their nature would put the veteran directly on a perimeter that they could prove had been sprayed.
