I was stationed at George Air Force Base from 1969 thru 1973, with a tour of South East Asia in between. I was a crew chief on F4 Phantoms. In 2005, I was diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and chronic emphysema. I turned in a claim to V/A for exposure too aircraft fumes, Agent Orange, and other toxic solutions. I never realized I was exposed to the same toxic agents at George Air Force Base for three full years. Because of my claim, V/A determined that my medical condition was caused by my military career. I am a 100% disabled Veteran receiving a medical V/A pension. I urge everyone who served at George, or Southeast Asia, during the Vietnam conflict, that has any breathing complications, to submit a claim at your nearest V/A office. It’s time for the forgotten veterans of Vietnam to seek out the help they and their families need. Do it today a retired Vietnam Era Veteran.

I am not a doctor or attorney, and cannot give medical advice or legal advice.
