   Welcome to hadit.  I moved your post from an old post to a new post so that you can get more and better answers.  In the future, its helpful if you create a new post for your questions.  

    Im not sure where "121 EVAC hospital" was assigned.  Was it Vietnam?  The question of Agent Orange revolves around the location you were exposed.  I apologize for being unfamiliar with the location of 121 evac hospital, perhpaps others know.  

   The list of countries presumptive for agent orange are here:

https://www.va.gov/disability/eligibility/hazardous-materials-exposure/agent-orange/

    It includes places like Vietnam Cambodia, etc.  check the list as well as applicable conditions.  

    BUT WAIT!!!!

    Just because your country or condition is not on the list, does not mean you were not exposed.  For example, a hadit member was the first to get SC for AO in CONUS.  So, you can be the first also, because many other places used agent orange, including USA.  

     You simply need good evidence, like our member documented.

The Army's 121st Evacuation Hospital is in Seoul, Korea. The question is were you evacuated there from Vietnam? Or are you a Korean War Vet? You stated you served from 1968-1969 that would put you as a Vietnam veteran. If you had boots on the ground it would qualify you as a PACT Act vet.

Secondly if you were a nurse at the 121st Evacuation Hospital you could have exposer due to your treatment of the people in your care.
