Aircrews Exposed to Agent Orange!

A growing amount of evidence supports the conclusion that veterans who served near aircraft used to spray Agent Orange
were exposed to Agent Orange. A scientific journal on Environmental Research titled “Post-Vietnam Military
Herbicide Exposures in UC-123 Agent Orange Spray Aircraft” concluded that trace levels of dioxin on such aircraft above the Department of Defense (DoD) standards of maximum permissible exposure to poisonous chemicals existed. Based upon surface wipes and airborne concentration test, the researchers concluded that
the crews would have inhaled, ingested, and absorbed through their skin the herbicide dioxin, commonly known as Agent Orange. Accordingly, in our opinion, any veteran who served on a crew that worked proximate to such aircraft should seek service connection for diseases identified as related to Agent Orange.
