Where is the Promised USAF C-123 Report?

The USAF School of Aerospace Medicine at Wright-Patterson AFB began their examination of the C-123 Agent Orange contamination and aircrew exposure in November. We were told of an expected release in April, yet here we are, nearly at the end of the month, with no report on the horizon.

What's happening? What role, if any, is the VA playing in the Air Force report? So far as I know, none of the aircrew, maintenance or aerial port personnel have been contacted about their expert input - why not?

In the October teleconference with VA officials, we were told that if the AF reported the C-123s to have exposed the aircrews to TCDD, the VA would accept that decision. Is the VA now working to make sure the AF releases an "approved" finding?
