Air Force Personnel Exposed to Contaminated C-123
Post member Joe Bisbing has forwarded a very important article of particular interest to Vietnam Veterans:
VA published a new regulation that expands eligibility for some benefits for a select group of Air Force Veterans and Air Force Reserve personnel who were exposed to the herbicide Agent Orange through regular and repeated contact with contaminated C-123 aircraft that had been used in Vietnam as part of Operation Ranch Hand (ORH).
The nexus is that the involved military personnel were exposed to Agent Orange because of the duties they were assigned, in the case discussed in the article the equipment, C-123 aircraft that sprayed Agent Orange in Vietnam, they were reassigned to in the United States. Apparently, the aircraft were never decontaminated. CLICK HERE
