Special Report

I arrived in Korea November 1971. The U.S. Government recently stopped spraying Agent Orange (TCDD) on the DMZ in August 1971. The gap was the reason the VA turn me down 3 times for a disability resulting from exposure to Agent Orange. A friend found a Special Report from Dow Chemical at a clean-up site. They found soil contamination 20 years later. Using this Special Report as evidence of my own exposure to Agent Orange, I was finally given 30% compensation on my 4th try. The paper is titled:  The Dow Chemical Company Interim Response Activity Designed to Meet Criteria - March 2012.  I hope the Special Report is useful for veterans needing to prove exposure to Agent Orange.
