I have heard recently from some co-workers that those of us who were stationed on Johnston Atoll are or will be placed in with the AO register.
Any veteran that believes they were contaminated by herbicides due to military service is entitled to be on the registry and get a free AO exam. The AO registry does not confer compensation or prove exposure.Their qualifying language:Exposure to dioxin, or other toxic substance in a herbicide or defoliant, during the conduct of, or as a result of, the testing, transporting, or spraying of herbicides for military purposes
If you believe you qualify, see the Environmental Health Co-Ordinator at the nearest VA Medical Center
