Keep trying I finally got the VA to conceded my Agent Orange exposure since they updated the shipslist to show that the Tripoli operated in costal waters close enough to Vietnam shore to be  considered exposed to AO. Also since we were in close enough they are conceding that we (persons with reasons to fly had BOOTS ON THE GROUND. Does not matter how long all you had to do was touch down. Also new IOM studies are now showing that the desalination process on the ship did not remove the dixons from the water and we probably showered in it and it was used for cooking. Look up the AO legislation that is currently pending before congress.
