AGENT ORANGE AT
FORT CHAFFEE, ARKANSAS
- Veterans Sick From Agent Orange-Poisoned Planes Still Seek Justice
- Agent Orange's reach beyond the Vietnam War
- VA's information on Post-Vietnam War Airplanes and Agent Orange exposure
Although the VA is claiming risk of long-term health problems from exposure to Agent Orange residue on post-Vietnam airplanes is minimal, just as the VA for years denied Agent Orange exposure in Vietnam and at test sites, Veterans who believe they have exposure-related health problems may file a claim for disability compensation. These claims will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
The first case of Agent Orange at Fort Chaffee has been finally approved by the VA. The VA has admitted to testing Agent Orange at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas, in 1966, 1967, and 1968. The VA has granted our first Veteran his 100% disability caused by Agent Orange at Fort Chaffee.
If you know anyone who served at Fort Chaffee and may be suffering from Agent Orange exposure, please have them contact me as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are fighting this battle in another Agent Orange test site here in the US, please feel free to contact me as well. This landmark decision is a precedent for you as well! Below are the links for our Veteran's documents showing the VA's admission of Agent Orange testing at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas, as well as the decision to grant 100% disability to our Veteran for the damage caused by our government's negligence.

Did you know there was Agent Orange stored (100s of barrels) and used at Fort Chaffee still in 1975?

Below is a quote from one of my many sources:
"Yesterday I spoke with two people who were involved, although in a small manner, with a part of the Agent Orange spraying at Chaffee. One of them is retired from the 188th and told me he was involved with the loading of the chemical onto the C-130 aircraft involved and stated, "... much of that stuff was spilled on the tarmac and we were sloshing through it as if it was water". The other person was at Chaffee and said the area sprayed was mostly East of Highway 96. Of course they were not particularly interested in the wind direction or force. The first person said they were not particularly careful with the stuff because they thought it was just a "grass and weed killer". Little did they know."
But our government, city and Fort Chaffee officials, want us to believe the Agent Orange testing at Fort Chaffee was carefully controlled and extremely limited. So why is it that we have so many who came through the gates of Fort Chaffee suffering from Agent Orange after effects?! Why does the City of Charleston have 10 times the national average for cancer and diabetes when all they did was use water from Engineers Lake, one of the test sites for Agent Orange?! If you believe Agent Orange is not harmful and caused no problems for our people at Fort Chaffee and surrounding areas, I have a bridge to sell you!
