DOD Refused (Again) To Designate C-123s As Agent Orange Exposure Sites

Asked for the third time, DOD declined for the third time to recognize former Agent Orange spray aircraft as "Agent Orange Exposure Sites." While we are not aware of the political reasons which prevent this logical step, we understand the reluctance DOD has in anything likely to assist veterans in claiming Agent Orange exposure.

Usually DOD cites lack of medical information or some other dodge, but this time they simply and honestly said, "no."

In a touch of DOD humor, we were referred back to the VA, where both we and DOD already know how C-123 veterans' claims are treated.
