I am confused (again)...what does his PTSD and the non SC psych issues have to do with AO exposure????If you are searching for a relationship between IHD, I understand, but has that been diagnosed by VA? If so, you need the "boots on the ground" evidence...start with the deck logs (though I think that avenue has already been attempted and no naval records provide that scenario).Good luck.

OK then....Your sole issue now is proving AO exposure..correct?The ship is not yet listed as being listed as an AO exposed vessel. You can begin the research yourself, using the Deck Log information, but I honestly think the Navy has already done that.If I understand this correctly, IHD is now your main issue? Y9u said he has already been diagnosed by VA? if so, you have some good foundation for when and if that ship ever is listed. Meanwhile, I don;t really think there is much else you can do in that regard.Make sense?

if it follows the standards used by other countries whose seamen were exposed,

I may know some of Okie City's actions around 70-71. There's a rumor they were using their missles as greetings to radar operators on the communist side. They were also running up and down the North's coast giving coastal batteries what for!I have a fondness for the Okie City and the others in Task Force71 from 1969. On April 15, 1969, a US Navy EC121 was shot down over the Sea of Japan by the North Koreans, the Oklahoma City participated in a search and rescue operation in the Sea of Japan with Task Force 71. The ships history says an Air Force plane, but it was VQ-1's PR-21. Thirty-one lost their lives and only 2 bodies were recovered.Sorry, none of this helps your cause, I just get a little nostalgic around "tax day".

Check her deck logs and you will see how close she came to shore during her swift nighttime raids

I honest to God heard the story of the guy who was Army, stationed in Germany, and had letters written on C-ration box tops (we actually did do that in '65) sent to him from his best buddy who was an ArTmy grunt type in Nam. The guy in Germany claimed that, since his friend was in areas sprayed by AO, the C-rat box lids were, therefore, presumed contaminated and that is how he justified his DM2 diagnosis 30 years later....AO exposure!

Is there any site with ships listed and what they did during Operation Frequent Wind?
Three other carriers were on station with us, and there were fifty U.S. Navy ship's in the Armada:

If we brought back all that agent orange in our duffel bags then we have contaminated 17 million here in the states and would support steam's claim of the chemicals we are exposed to everyday IS the basis.

In this age of environmental pollution, one group of chemicals stands out as the most perilous toxic threat to the general population, and yet, thus far peculiarly resistant to effective remedial action: dioxin. The threat is apparent from EPA's September 1994 dioxin reassessment, which concluded that:
Our daily intake of dioxin and dioxin-like chemicals creates a lifetime cancer risk in the general U.S. population that is 500-1,000 times greater than the "acceptable" one in a million risk. In pregnant women long-term damage to the fetus may also occur close to this level of exposure, leading to birth defects, disrupted sexual development, and damage to the nervous and immune systems.
Nearly all of the general population's exposure to dioxin comes from food, two-thirds of it from milk, dairy products and beef, major components of the diet.
For their part, milk cows and beef cattle absorb dioxin by eating dioxin-contaminated feed crops. Since we cannot readily eliminate these foods, action must be taken to prevent the contamination of the feed crops by dioxin.
Dioxin enters the environment chiefly in the form of airborne emissions from incinerators, particularly those that burn municipal and medical waste. The EPA dioxin reassessment proposed, as a hypothesis, that once emitted, dioxin is carried in the air to farms where it is deposited on the crops fed to milk cows and beef cattle.Since there is no way to shield crops from dioxin deposited on them from the air, or to later remove it, action to prevent crop contamination must be directed at the sources that produce dioxin, such as incinerators. CBNS is a research organization with considerable experience in the analysis of environmental, energy and resource problems and their economic implications. Established in 1966 at Washington University, St. Louis, CBNS moved to Queens College in 1981, where it is organized as a research institute of the City University of New York. Over a period of 30 years CBNS has become known for an extensive series of pioneering studies on environmental issues such as trash disposal, agricultural sources of pollution, and environmental carcinogens; on energy issues such as conservation, cogeneration and solar energy; on resource issues such as organic farming and waste reduction; and on the relation of such issues to economic factors and social welfare.
