There definitely have been awards of AO due to exposure in Okinawa.

Not easy to win but not impossible.

I did 2 months on Oki, Camp Hansen, just outside of Kin Ville back in 68. Never gave any thought to AO Exposure, just glad I never got the Clap.

What type of AO exposure, Crew,  plane maintenance or base personnel. Your talking what, Kadina AFB?

This fairly recent Okinawa AO award might not be in the links above.

This is an excellent case and a great read for how he proved exposure to AO via his MOS and buddy statements.

    • 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.
