As a continuation in our series of "ideas" for filing Blue Water Navy herbicide disability claims, this "Da Nang Harbor Exposure Analysis" offers thoughts into why Da Nang was different than any other location during the Vietnam War. It is based on Primary Source materials, which are statements written by individuals who were there and whose job it was to make the kind of observations these are.

If you use this with a claim, fill it with statements on how this material applies to YOU, the claimant. Make it personalized, with statements indicating that this experience happened to you and is not simply a general statement. Make inserts and updates that fit your situation. Include additional lay statements of what you OBSERVED. Get additional input from your VSO.
