I served in Korea in 1971, '72,'73 as a heavy equipment mechanic. When I signed up for VA care in 2011 at the Phoenix center I was reading a DAV magazine and saw an article on AO use in Korea. My doctor during my initial interview added AO to my profile.
Has anyone else that served in Korea been listed?

Korean Demilitarized Zone and Agent Orange Exposure
Veterans who served in a unit in or near the Korean demilitarized zone (DMZ) anytime between April 1, 1968 and August 31, 1971 and who have a disease VA recognizes as associated with Agent Orange exposure are presumed to have been exposed to herbicides. These Veterans do not have to show they were exposed to Agent Orange to be eligible for disability compensation for these diseases.
