You are correct, there are no presumptive measures for Military in Thailand unless you were involved in security of bases or camps in the country.

The problem seems to be that no tdy orders are part of your permanent record. It would seem that the US Army considered our service to be of such small consequence, that retention of travel orders were not a part of policy. If the boots on ground policy was revised to include only Infantry and any units deployed in the feild, you would find that 75 % of people assigned to VN would not be able to provide any proof at all of exposure since they were there in a support role only and not of combat arms mos. For every soldier in the feild there were 3 soldiers supporting him in the rear echelons. That may be true, but the government has determined that "boots on the ground", not combat arms MOS is the criteria for "presumptive exposure". I feel my service to this nation is just as important and notable as any who served in southeast asia and isn't diminished at all by the negative and selfserving opinions expressed by some here. No one, I repeat, no one has questioned or diminished your service and it is as honorable as any one else's. I served honorably for 2 tours in southeast asia and consider my service to be just as deserving as any. I am positive that there are many Thai Vets who are of the same viewpoint as I, because proximity of threat surely would include many who are being overlooked and denied the benefits they so richly deserve who served within the theater of operations. "Threat" is not an issue in this thread...herbicide exposure is and those who can prove that direct exposure to an herbicide will readily have a claim for illness as a result of that exposure.

Both are AO Acts.You see SJ, there are others that come to mind first and foremost for many other people.There is absolutely no reason for you to bring up any thing such as the "good $h!t smoking". Since the only drugs I take are taken to control the Multiple Myeloma and Osteonectosis of the Jaw your statement is a direct affront and a direct attack on my character.

I was reading on the internet about the spraying of AO. It said that the drift of the spraying was about six miles.
