AGENT ORANGE EXPOSURE from jim kyte on April 01, 2013 at 07:25:51
Email: jim kyte

I just wanted to respond to the inquiry about agent orange.
I had the privaledge to serve aboard the Iwo Jima from 1963 through 1965. During most of 65 we served in Viet Nam with extreme limited liberty during the cruse. One day we we allowed to go ashore to have a cook out of steak and have 3 beers. Photo"s were taken for the cruise book.

I used these photo"s as proof for the "Boots on the Ground"
requirement by the VA.It was accepted for my presumtive claims.

I hope this might help ant of those having trouble with this requirement.
