This is written not to alarm anybody but to inform you about Agent Orange. I have been receiving e-mails about what exposure we may have had of Agent Orange while in Vietnam. If you were in the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment or one of the attached units, you were exposed to Agent Orange, White and Blue all three dioxins were use. First of all do not panic, your exposure was years ago and you canít do anything about it now. Here is what you should do. Go to the nearest VA to you and register with them, bring your DD214, and your last income tax return.
This is what will happen, you will receive a booklet containing a summary of benefits. You will be provided with a doctor, you will receive a physical examination, they will take a blood sample, urine sample, take an X-ray and will give you an eye examination. Should you need glasses you will receive them in about two weeks at NO COST, and they will check your eyes each year after that. You will be offered FREE Flu, Pneumonia, and Shingles shots. You may also ask to have an Agent Orange screening which is nothing more than another physical examination. This time they enter your results into an Agent Orange data base. Itís easy, you have been through it all before. How do I know? I just went through the process myself and I did research on the internet as well. I thought all the spraying was done up north by the DMZ. I Corps sprayed 2,355,322 gallons, II Corps sprayed 1,054,406 gallons, down where we were in III Corps 4,086,229 gallons, and in IV Corps 669,534 gallons were sprayed. Here is a web site you may check out to view spraying by Corps, by City & Towns: www.landscaper.net/agent2.htm
If you should have or contact any of the illnesses that are presumed by the VA to be service-connected you are entitle to receive health care services and disability compensation. Make a claim for disability (You donít have to prove anything other than you were in Vietnam) your DD214 will take care of that. At your local VA, ask for the ďMilitary Order of the Purple Heart OfficeĒ They will fill out the disability claim form for you, you just need to sign the form.
I sincerely hope this will ease the concern you may have about your exposure of Agent Orange. There is help available, take advantage of it, you paid the price forty plus years ago. Should you have additional questions check with your local VA or if I can help, Iím available on line at www.FaceBook.com/11thACVVC

THIS IS THE ONLY OFFICIAL HOMEPAGE OF THE 11TH ARMORED CAVALRY'S VETERANS OF VIETNAM & CAMBODIA
The 11th Armored Cavalry's Veterans of Vietnam & Cambodia was founded in 1984 after 75 names of Blackhorse Troopers were collected in Washington DC at the dedication of the "Three Fighting Men" statue near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Reunions have been held every year since 1986. Reunion sites have been: Arlington, TX; Washington, DC; Louisville, KY; Minneapolis, MN; Sacramento, CA; Philadelphia, PA; San Antonio, TX; Indianapolis, IN; Colorado Springs, CO; Appleton, WI; Louisville, KY; Las Vegas, NV; New Orleans, LA; San Diego, CA; Buffalo, NY; Ft. Myers, VA; Nashville, TN; Eugene OR; Daytona FL; Kansas City, MO; Louisville, KY; Chicago, IL; Santa Clara, CA; Washington, DC; Saint Louis, MO; and Orlando, FL. The 2013 reunion will be held in Indianapolis, IN. Las Vegas, NV has been chosen for the 2014 reunion.
We have been able to reunite many of our brothers by keeping a computer master file of everyone we've found by their name, squadron and troop and their dates in-country. We update our rosters continuously to assure they are accurate and complete. We have reunited many buddies this way.
We publish a quarterly newsletter to each member of 11 ACVVC with reunion information, historical stories by our membership and information about our current members and events. Participation in contributing to the contents of the newsletter is encouraged to all.
We provide scholarships to our
K.I.A.'s children, our 11 ACVVC members, and the children of our membership. In the
past years, we have provided over $967,000.00 in college scholarships to help defray the expensive costs of a
college education. Scholarships are for $4,000 per individual. This program is
one of our most coveted programs, helping our children get an education and to become our
leaders for the future of our country.
Scholarship Application & Information
We remember our killed in action who lost their lives in Vietnam and Cambodia each Memorial Day & Veterans Day by placing a wreath at The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
We continue to search for our brother veterans who served with us in Vietnam and Cambodia through special locators, mailings, handouts, and advertising in veteran newspapers and magazines. Our goal is to find ALL of our former troopers who served with us and to "Reunite The Regiment" again.
We answered our Country's call and served proudly with the best combat unit to have fought in the Vietnam War.
