how can i find out if i was exposed to agent orange in germany from 1963 to 1966?
the doctor said i have all the syntomes of agent orange heart surg cancer and blood problems.
Not sure I understand your question. Are you prior military? Stationed in Germany 63-66? Is the VA telling you that you have agent orange symptoms?
yes i was in the army there .
But who is telling you that you have agent orange symptoms? The VA? Have you applied for treatment from the VA?
the va told me to find out where agent orange was stored in germany.
I could find nothing that points to use in Germany
I did find
1. The Korean demilitarized zone in 1968 and 1969 (extensive spraying).
2. Fort Drum, NY in 1959 (testing).
Other areas where veterans allege AO to have been sprayed include:
1. Guam from 1955 through 1960s (spraying).
2. Johnston Atoll (1972-1978) was used for unused AO storage.
3. Panama Canal Zone from 1960s to early 1970s (spraying).
4. Elgin AFB (Agents Orange and Blue) on Firing Range and Viet Cong Village.
5. Wright-Patterson AFB (OH) and Kelly AFB (TX).
You can request information under the Freedom of Information Act (more info here http://www.dod.mil/pubs/foi/)
To determine if there is a record of this...it may very well be there is a record of AO being stored in Germany
