I'm Robert Vipond and I am writing to you concerned about discussions of Agent Orange exposure for Blue Water Vets. I served aboard the USS America on a West Pac 1969-1970 and I am trying to locate any sailors who have filed claims with the VA regarding medical issues related to Agent Orange. I am in contact with a number of senators and house reps as we focus on the legislation currently before Congress. Steve Ewing passed your name on to me and I'm asking about information that you might be willing to share. My squadron was RVAH-12, NAS Albany, GA. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks. RFV.
