I've had my aortic heart valve replaced twice over a six-year period. Does that qualify me for agent orange? I also have a pacemaker in. I was on the USS Midway CV a 41 and I did a second tour on the USS Chara AE 31 1965-1967.
I was Air Force. I flew over 1110 hours of combat flight time out of Okinawa as a North Vietnamese linguist handling multichannel intercept. I never set foot on the ground. I did however contract MS while flying those missions which shut my ears off sending me stateside and leading to a 6 month early out. Nam vet or Nam era vet?
