My husband served 13 months in Korea on the DMZ.We believes
he was exposed to Agent Orange during this tour.He now
suffers fro Type 2 diabetes,congestive heart failure, an
enlarged heart,and gout. How can we prove to the VA that
these diseases were caused by Agent Orange exposure? He was
there in 1975-1976. I appreciate your help.

I was on the DMZ twice the first time was in 1972. I was TDY
from Hawaii to Camp Casey for 30 days. While TDY we went up
on the DMZ, for 24 hour boarder duty for the experience!
Then from June 1985 to June 1986 I was with 1st 17th
Mechanized Infantry 2nd Infantry Division, Camp Casey Korea.
We pull boarder duty for thirty days at Camp Liberty Bell,
on the DMZ. I believe it was there that I was exposed to
ageant orange!

I served with the 2nd Engineer BN assigned to the 2nd Infantry Div
during the presumptive dates, and was inside the DMZ almost on a
daily basis reinforcing the underground bunkers; yet my unit is
not listed on the list of Unit's approved. How do I prove I was
inside the DMZ. My Commendation Medal description says that's what
I did, will that suffice???

I was Korea from 1974 to 1976. my unit was 1/9 INF we
where in the DMZ where we patrolled and had a few
incidents including the tree coping altercation with the
North Koreans during my tenner we would go in alerts this
meant we had to dig fox hols ( firing position in case
the balloon went up ) I was a M60 MG Gunner. the dirt
that I had to move was was and is still contaminated with
Agent Orange. Also while there at night the army would
have the Korean civilians drive a tractor pulling some
kind of big round agriculture sparer around sparing some
kind of DDTsss to kill the Miskito's well out whole unit
was breathing this in it happen at night. I now am

We served every compound up there in towing and even loading

issues most likely due to AO. Now I'm waiting to hear on my
claim. And I also wonder why I was never notified that I was
exposed and been going to VA in Cincinnati Oh for 25 years
and just found out that they sprayed AO in Korea 3 yrs.
ago . I always thought it was a Vietnam thing. And now I'm
having problems even getting my Docs. to discuss it with me

I was in Korea 2/68 - 3/69 and served in HQB 1st Battalion,
17th Artillery. We were an I Corps unit serving in the 2nd
Division area. Specifically, Camp McIntyre.



The VA's vague reference to units who served "near" the DMZ
is frustrating. Is "near" 100 feet, or 100 miles? Nobody
will give me a straight answer.



I have several symptoms of possible Agent Orange exposure,
but my unit is not on the Presumptive Exposure List. Can
anybody tell me if Camp McIntyre was "near" the DMZ?
Better yet, were you there and got your AO ticket punched?

I just wanted to commend anyone you served in Korea rather
on the DMZ or South for being there in harms way.

Remember the Government at first said Agent Orange was only
used in certain areas in Vietnam before they blanketed the
whole country.

Agent Orange was brought into Korea by plane or ship and
someone had to store it and truck it to wherever it was
sprayed. I am not sure what is a presumptive unit Does
anyone have a very claritive answer?.

Howze, but was required as a part of my duties as
Personnel Actions Chief by our new General to serve as the
Administrator Boards officer and traveled in and out of all
of the line units on a regular basis. I have filed a claim
based on the "at or near language" in the regulation and
its similarity to the Vietnam finding that even landing on
an airplane in Vietnam qualifies as serving in Vietnam. I
have tried my driver and clerks to verify this, but no luck
to date. I was diagnosed with Mulitple Myeloma in 1997 and
having been treated ever since. I also have Type 2
Diabetes contracted about 5 years later. I was forced to
retire shortly after 1997. Looking for anyone with a
similar claim.

Nice picture. I wish someone had a web page about the camp, so I could add a link to it on my web page.

When I was in the area in 69-70, it was a Engineer unit there. Was at CRC in 81-82, and Essayons was a Artillery Camp. Now closed.

Found alot of good pics from Camp Stanley searching the web. I was surprised to hear all the camps are closing. I went to Ft. Devens, Mass. from Korea and they closed that too!

I always had a Korean photagrapher that ran around the camp take pictures. I had a ton of pics but the house fire took everthing.

I drove an Ambulance to CRC, Camp Stanley, and Camp Casey all the
time.

There was an engineer unit there at that time. 13th Engineers (Combat) if I remember right. My 201 file says it was the 11th Engineers though but I sure do remember it being the 13th. I was in Charlie company in the middle of the compound. They tried to make me the company clerk the first week there. It didn't work out though because they found out it took me all day to do the morning report. Still can't type worth a damn They put in the POL dump refueling equipment. I got to go everywhere but being new in country I don't remember every place. Camp Stanley, CRC, Camp Casey, Camp Indian. Even made it up by the DMZ once or twice. Some job site that wasn't far from some tanks that were doing menuevers or just playing Army!!! A couple of them was low on fuel and asked me if I could fuel them. I did but got a butt chewed for doing so. I figured everything was painted green so what the heck. Fueled a fixed wing plane up by Casey once that was low on fuel and landed just South of the Camp Casey. He said he was spraying insecticide. He said it was an air field but It looked like just an over sized road to me. Got my butt chewed for that also. The colors to the engineer battalion went state side and I was transferred acrossed Uijongbu to A company 51st Signal Battalion at Camp Piliaau. That is a very funny story in itself. Ended up in the supply room. Just destined to type I guess. If any one remembers which engineer battalion was at Essayons at that time let me know would you. Trying to get records straightened out.

stilltruckin: Welcome to the site. The 11th Engineer Bn was at Essayons and Stanley. The 13th Eng Bn was under the 7th Inf Div, and were up in the Camp Casey area. I was departing Cp Stanley about the time you arrived at Essayons. I was in D Company 4th Maint Bn, and the 36th Engineer Gp was one of the units we supported.

Hey I just thought of some thing maybe you can answer for me since you were there all those times. When ever I went to Soul to exchange laundry and equipment while at Camp Piliaau I would go down I believe route 3 it was and I noticed a mound of dirt that was as long as you could see from the road. When I questioned my civilian worker about it he told me that it was the civilian control line and it went all the way across the country and in the case of an invasion all citizens had to get south of that line because that was where it was intended to stop the invasion. I remember I thought it was just another one of the stories that was told to all the new guy's but I always did wonder about it. The reason I asked him was because we seen a Koren helo spraying and it looked just like the one that sprayed all around Camp Essayons the month before and he said it was spraying to kill the foliage. I told him I was told they were spraying insecticides and he told me that the Americans spray the insecticides with planes and the Koreans spray to kill the foliage with helo's. It kind of fit because the helo didn't go south of that mound of dirt. At that time any way. I always wondered about the story about the mound of dirt though because when I tried to find out from other GI's they didn't know anything about it. Maybe it was just one of those stories?

Man i loved your pic of the front gate..i remember it well. I was in B Btry 6/37 '80-'81 I read a post from a guy who drove an ambulance between CRC and Stanley about that time. I once twisted my foot backwards coming off the ramp of a CH-47. After a dust off back to Essayons, an ambulance took me to stanley. It may have been you man. Remember the "Business Girl" we ran into on the way there? Your side mirror hit her in the shoulder..and we ran a ROK roadblock on the way back, remember? If anyone was there or were in B Btry on "the planet" about that time i'd love to hear from you....take care Brothers.."on the minute"!!

Was at Camp Essayons from early 83 to late 84..C Btry 6/37 FA MLRS, shit hit the fan a couple of times. Especially with the slicky boys that the north sent down. We were out and about, in the Chawron Valley highway 1. Also spent time in the river and swamps north of camp and patrolling that area-could we have been exposed to the defoliants that were used back in the seventies. On the DMV they were spraying in 84. Still remember going from covered position to an entire area of sand and rock on the ridges overlooking the valley

I was station at Camp Essayons, 6th BN 37th FA, HQ Btry, from Nov 1976 to Nov 1977. I work out of the motor pool and was the PLL clerk, 76D10. Maintain and ordered repair parts for all vehicles and the M1-10 howziers the Big GUNS. The village outside the compound at that time was called Hockamarie in the Uijeongbu area. I toured the DMZ and had to sign a wavier and if I got shot while on the tour the Military wouldn't be held responsible. We were all the time in the field and the only duties I conducted was perimeter guard. Lying around in that foliage that has been sprayed with agent orange.
