I just got this from a friend who was not in Vietnam and is on the Agent Orange Registry because of this exposure. He has several conditions that have causes related to Agent Orange. What he says here I don’t believe is well known so I am trying to get this to as many as possible that went through Survival School at Eglin. I know that is probably all Navy and Marines who went through preflight in Pensacola.
If you "google" Agent Orange Testing on Eglin Air Force Base, FL you will see that it was a prime testing ground for that SHIT! On the Vietnam Veterans of America web site there is an article written by an Survival School Instructor who taught at the survival school at Eglin AFB. In that article the survival school instructor states that every Naval Pilot who went through Pensacola during the 60's and early 70's, and also attend the three day survival course at Eglin AFB, was heavily exposed to AO from eating the vegetation (Polk Sally), snakes/rabbits, drinking the water from the creek, and helicopters that constantly flew overhead spraying that SHIT. In Vietnam AO was sprayed at a rate of 14.8 kg of AO per hectare. At Eglin AFB AO was sprayed at a rate of 876 kg per hectare.
I suggest this get widest distribution as many may be suffering effects that would make them eligible for treatment and disability from the VA.
And additional info from John xxxxxx
Several years back there was an article in NATURE(the science magazine)had an article on Agent Orange application in VN. A number cruncher unraveled the mission code and symbols logged with ops. Tay Ninh Province had the highest concentration of spraying in country. Nearly all 90+% of the NVA in that AO had children still born or with serious birth defects. Most of the NVA developed a range of predictable cancers and tumors... most died much younger then expected. They were directly under the spray... and that was lethal.
The Spraying in III & IV Corp. were flown off the Long Bin NDB... every mission was specific as to where they sprayed and area covered... !
