Col Richey reported that he had email correspondence from Dick Stroud regarding 3-9 & 12th marines reunions.
There was a discussion about Agent Orange and Medical issues related to our exposure. The VA has an Agent Orange Registry. The VA has apparently lost some records which has caused a problem for some in establishing that they were in fact exposed during their service. The VA accepts testimonial letters as proof.Lt. Huslander said he would be happy to write a testimonial letter for anyone who served with him at Con Thien.
