I was stationed at DaNang with the 366 AP Sq from l966 (Dec) thru March l967 when 25 Air Police were transfered to NhaTrang to support the 14th AP SQ. While stationed at DaNang I was on guard duty at a storage facility with another airman when a spill occurred. We were told to get into the gate shack because of this incident. We contacted security control and informed them of this and a short time later a TSgt came and reassigned us on another post. Shortly there after, I stated having large bumps appear on my face. I only learned about 2 years age that it was Cloracne. I had filed a claim because it had left my face badly scared. When I went to VN I had a very good complexion. My daughter sent me a news paper from the Vicksburg Post, dated Fri, June 15, 2007, which showed that DaNang AFB had the highest level of Dioxon, the toxic chemical compound in Agent Orange. I would invite everyone that was stationed at DaNang to write for this paper or may be able to get it on the web. It said that DaNang had the highest levels of dioxin (300 to 400 times higher than internationally accepted limits). The page long articled showed young kids all crippled and deformed and "grotesque health problems". A copy of this article was sent to Washington DC with my claim. I, also, recently been diagnosed as a Diabetic. Three years ago I underwent two head and neck surgeries for cancer, chemo and radiation.If anyone needs any further info, please feel free to contact me and I will be glad to answer.
