I am also looking for proof of exposure to herbicide/AO at perimeter and buddy statements for my father who was stationed at Udorn from August 68- August 69 as an electronics technician/navigation. He also performed his work on the trim pad/flight line. He was t TDY Okinawa for two weeks during this time and then stopped in Saigon, Vietnam on the way back to Udorn. I am looking for any statements or photographs showing or describing these particular areas during his time of service. He was diagnosed with B-Cell lymphoma last year which is a listed disease and has undergone extremely intense in-patient and out-patient chemo continually; however, as many others have experienced, the exposure is difficult to prove. Thank you for helping.

I was station at RTAFB Udorn Thailand from Nov 1968 through Dec 1969. MY AFSC was 32854 & 74. (Aircraft Inertial Navigation and Radar Systems Repairman). I worked RF-4C and F4-D all over the Flight line. A lot of our repairs where made in the revetment area very close to the perimeter. I also had to clear RED X at both ends of the runway, very close to perimeter. I need information from other airmen or military members to help me confirm the fact for the VA.

I was stationed at Udorn RTAFB 1970- 1971. I was an Inertial Navigation and Radar Systems Repairman in the 432nd AMS. In 2007 I had a Quad By-Pass ( Ischemic Heart Disease) and I have been battling Prostate Cancer for almost 3 years now.  During my Radical Cystectomy Surgery some of my Cancer got loose so I now have Advanced Prostate Cancer. All of my Healthcare has been at the VA . I am very grateful for the care they have given me but it seems there are TWO VA's. The Health Care System and the Administrative ( Disability Claims) System. I  filed for Disability 2 1/2 years ago and I was, of course, initially DENIED. I am now in the Appeals Process. As all of you Air Force guys who where stationed in Thailand know, WE WERE ALL ON THE PERIMETER at one time or another, so this is all BS on the part of the VA. I was sent to Udorn as a 3 Level and my NCOIC wasn't very happy about that, thus I was detailed out for almost every detail they could think of or create. I was an Augmentee Security Guard, I specifically remember being on the Perimeter at night. I did Barrier Alert duty also. There are, of course, no records. Later , I went on to be an A.R.T at Selfridge ANGB, (927th CAMS) and at Duke Field FLA (919th) I did almost 14 years Active and Reserve in the USAF. My best friend during my first 4 years was Pete Minier. We were stationed together everywhere ( including Udorn ) for our 4 years active duty in the AF. Pete apparently , committed Suicide in the mid 80s , thus, I cannot get any buddy letters. It is my opinion that we Thailand AF Vets are NOT going to WIN any Disability Claims without an Attorney. I highly recommend after your Initial Denial that you guys HIRE an Attorney. I had several meetings with various VSOs and they're attitude towards Thailand AF Vets seems to be very poor. Giving an Attorney 20 percent of the accumulated back Disability ( if you ever get it) is, in my opinion, a bargain. The Air Force sprayed Herbicides everywhere on Thai AF Bases, the perimeter, the runways, the sidewalks, they roadways , and they know Damn well they did. Yet , the VA continues to treat us like Viet Nam War Step Childs. My Prognosis (survival) is at best 6-8 years and I'm not real sure I'll ever see any Disability. I just hope my Wife does. I would love to hear from any of you Guys that remember Me or Peter Minier. oldtimingguy49@gmail.com   Thank You for this Website.

I am looking for anyone who may have served with my dad. He was stationed in Okinawa as a mechanic. (Sgt) I am uncertain of the years, but I believe he was there between 1968-1970. If anyone knew him, please reach out to me, as I have so many questions. Thank you. And God bless all of you who served so selflessly.

My father served at UBON Jan 69 to Jan 70 and Korat 75 and 76. He was a munitions specialist who traveled the roads outside of the bases daily to work the ammo dump and P.O.L. He is one of those seeking proof as required by the VA that he falls into the "direct exposure" class. What he needs is corroborating testimony from others in his field or similar duty assignments to confirm (or deny) his claim of the routes taken daily to his duty assignment and the proximity to these chemicals, which included daily travel outside of the perimeter.

Thank you,

Mike B.

I was stationed in Korat, RTAFB from 68-69, assigned to the 553rd Recon Wing, 554th Recon Squadron.  We were the "BatCats" flying many long hours over Laos, Cambodia and Viet Nam.  I'm not sure what category we fit in but thought I'd put my two cents worth in.

Note from the Viet-REMF webmaster:


Walter, I invite you (and all others) to visit the web site of the Thailand, Laos, Cambodia Brotherhood, Inc. of which I am a charter member.  There are a number of others in the TLCB who served with the Batcats.  Check out the web pages at

http://www.tlc-brotherhood.com and join the conversations on the Forum pages.  Consider becoming a member.  We are always looking for new members to bring on board.  You will certainly "fit" with us.

I was stationed in (Northern Thailand)Udon Thani RTAFB, in 1966, 630 Combat Support Group, 17th Tac Recon Sq; before there, I was TDY at Kadena AB, Okinawa, Dec 1965 - Mar 1966; 3-day stop-over at Tan Son Nhut AB, enroute to Udon Thani. I filed an Agent Orange Exposure Claim (Suffering from acute Chloracne and nodule skin lesions disorder) since 2009, and after a few exam, I have been waiting for my next appointment for 16 months. It seems they are waiting for us to die-off; but I will not quit, until this is settled. I have weathered this physical problem since 1967.
