UPDATE ON THE AGENT ORANGE ISSUE FOR BLUE WATER NAVY VETERANS OF VIETNAM ERA. After a year of daily research on the subject of "Dioxin" and agent orange it has been found that a chemical called "Silvex" was used aboard Naval units operating off shore in the Gulf of Tonkin. Silvex has the same chemical make up as Agent Orange Herbicide. Does anyone ever remember seeing those little square red cans of "weed killer" aboard any ship afloat. Product name is "WeedOne", having personally spoken to several naval personnel aboard various naval ships at the time (the men who worked in (water tenders labs, and evaporators)I'm told by these people that several gallons a day were added to the fresh water tanks to keep down algae growth in the tanks. This particular weed killer contains "Silvex" and Dioxin. I need some actual documentation or notarized statements to attest to the fact this chemical was used aboard ships. Going before congress after January 2005, to testify about the use of this chemical, with additional proof it will enable us to get all the navy blue water vets disability compensation. Let's hear from anyone that has any information. mikeleach46@yahoo.com
