AO exposure on DG

I recently started my application to the VA for AO exposure. I have had several medical problems that my doctors at UCLA had attributed to AO/Chemical exposure. The problem is is was in DG in 1984/5 and never in Vietnam or the DMZ so the VA rep will not take my appointment for application. In addition to my medical aspects and orders to show I was on the island we have comments from a Naval Officer that stated that AO existed on the island during my deployment. Apparently the British Government had demanded that the US clean up the AO in the water system or vacate the Island. Can anyone out there confirm the use/storage of AO chemicals on DG? dennisstratton@sbcglobal.net
