Your right about one thing Horse Hockey, Oh, I mean Steam Jockey, the VA will never attempt to do a study that would duplicate or refute the Australian
study. They are like their fearless leader. They already gave the answer, so why do a study to determine whether their stated conclusions are valid or not.
Hell, they won't even do a study to determine whether blue water Navy Vietnam veterans have an equal or higher incidence of certain Agent Orange cancers
and conditions than their ground troop counterparts or a higher incidence than than the general population. No, the VA will never do this. And why? These
sorts of studies may prove them wrong. They made that mistake once with NHL and got away with it, so they may not be able to get away with it a 2nd time. So
keep up your "blind, know it all, and the VA concurs with me so there opposition" to benefits of fellow veterans that for some is their only hope of
getting the medical care that their conditions require. We already know that blue water Navy Vietnam veterans have NHL in excess of not only the general
population but also in excess of their ground troop counterparts and their non-Vietnam veteran blue water Navy counterparts. Oh, but that's right. NHL is
only caused by AO if you were on land. If you were on a ship, a stones throw from shore, your NHL was caused, not by Agent Orange, but by unknown factors.
So, ridicule and rant if you want and every once in a while, I'll step in to add my opinion, knowing full well that you and your ilk are relentless and
will always make sure you get the last word.

When you have a citation showing Congress intended to include offshore elements in presumption or a citation showing a repeatable peer reviewed study
indicating offshore elements were exposed and harmed by herbicide exposure in Vietnam, get back to me... otherwise we're done here. I don't do
I also don't bother with individuals that insist on calling names. I take that you have nothing of substance to offer. It's also your last warning in
that regard. The next instance will earn you an entry in my twit list.

when was the Zumwalt report deemed bogus?
I just havent heard of the Zumwalt report being bogus, or "proved" bogus. Is there a link to that?

IOM has reviewed it and chose not to act on it either.

cruiser pointed out that the vsm fiasco was corrected when someone noticed that it was incorrect. amazing that the 27-97 citation came out in 97 and it took
something like five years (2002) before someone noticed that the rule that they were going by about using the vsm on claims was incorrect.
