Hello there,

It does appear that Agent Orange was used in Panama in the 60 s and 70s including at Fort Sherman and Fort Davis. The US governement continues to deny the amount used because the Panamanian government has been seeking clean up costs of upwards of 300 million dollars for environmental contamination. Please see this article that I am giving you a link to because it references all of these items and also speaks about the Jones case. There is also other reference material in this article that you can use to do additional research and believe it or not Wikipedia has some information about it --
