I was in Viet Nam from 1971 to 1973 as a civilian advisor, in the field with the ARVN. I originally worked out of Americale at Chu Lai then moved to all sorts of outposts, mostly in I-Corps before leaving in April 1973. I now have Follicular Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma stage IV Grade 3B. I am eligible for some sort of small benefit from my former employer's workman's comp policy if I can connect the cancer to the Agent Orange I was around. Does anyone know of an epidemiologist I can contact to look over my records and say if he/she can reasonably say my cancer is typical of what he/she would expect from Agent Orange exposure? It would be a slam dunk if I had been in uniform at the time.
