DOD has no documentation of AO utilized outside of Vietnam, LAOS or Cambodia, so where'd it come from, how'd it get there? Veterans know better. Yet for liability reasons our government gives a gator salute.

Where Did All That Agent Orange Come From
For those of us that have been around the Association for a few years, we’ve all run acrosssituations of “no evidence provided by DOD, etc…etc..” to the point it is so frustrating. Youcatch yourselves buried deeply in claims work knowing situations happened, herbicides wereused, only to be slapped with a denial letter along the way.Chain of custody on procurement of AO and various herbicides seem to be non-existent withinDOD records. But here is a little known piece of publicity that sheds more light on how all thatAgent Orange ended up in the supply system to begin with.http://www.bhopal.net/worldmap/new_zealand_more.html Welcome to New Plymouth's lvon Watkins Dow chemical factory in an island area of NewZealand. You may be surprised to learn theyused to make Agent Orange - 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D - were shipped from the Taranaki wharves in the1960s to the American base at Subic Bayin the Philippines for use in the Vietnam War. Home of Naval Supply Depot Subic Bay, thelargest supply facility in the Pacific.http://www.nsd.e-webbies.com/history/38-history/51-history-of-the-naval-supply-depot-subic- bay What makes this significant is that Blue Water Navy ships and aircraft would be utilized totransport AO to its final destination. Naval Station SubicBay had several piers ships could moor to, the largest being Alava Pier where aircraft carriersfrequently visited having ready access to large cranesPier-side to easily onload and offload cargo. There were additional piers adjacent to the NavalSupply Depot and Ship Repair Facility as well.The Leyte Pier was across the bay on the Naval Air Station Cubi Point side with the samecapabilities as Alava Pier. Additional piers could be found atThe Fuel Farm just down from Naval Supply Depot and the Naval Magazine Cubi Point area.Frequently aircraft from Clark AB would arrive at NAS Cubi Point and take on cargo for further destinations. Based upon supply requisitions generated  by various commanders throughout the world, key card punch operators would cut the IBMcards and deliver them to communications facilities for transmission.
At the end of a 90 day period the telecommunications facilities (NTCC Subic Bay) would burnor shred the cards. Hence, no local logistic records available.During 80-85 incoming supply requisitions were recorded on large reels of magnetic tapes and turned over to the Supply Depot. Those used for transmittingdata were run over a degausser and stripped of any intelligible data after 90 days. The disc packson the DST-9000 computer system at NTCC Subic were frequently reformatted and reutilized ona rotating basis. All paper copies were destroyed after 90 days. Leading to no records available inDOD communication facilities.Supply requisitions commonly were processed through DAAS Dayton OH
