Now I can't find it myself, but it's the map that shows the King travels over the world it mentions the fire and different places the ship has been. I'm trying to find it again.

Mark D, can you please explain to me when I went to http://uss-king.com/king wikidoku.php?id=comhist and went to the the spot above number it said DaNang Harbor 6/27/66, 10/21/67, 4/14/69, 8/8/70? When I went to to the link before I didn't go down far enough, but I did today.

I'm not sure what you mean - could you clarify that please?

Does anyone know if the waters in Vietnam has ever been tested for AO lately or if Subic Bay water was ever tested?

I am a Vietnam era vet who served at subic bay.  We loaded many, many barrels with orange stripes that i later was told it was agent orange.  many of these barrels were leaking and we were told to wipe them off and reload them onto trucks.  i would like to hear from any vet who while in the phillipines was exposed to agent orange.

Here's who I written so far:Sec. of VA, Joint Services, Blue Water Navy, Senator Akaka, Sen. Feinstein, Sen. Boxer and Rep McKeon. The funny thing is at Christmas time Costco had if you bought ink you got 2 books of stamps free, little did I know I would use them for this as I had already done Christmas cards and was wondering what I would with the stamps.

Now, I'm no politician but I have heard of "pork barrel spending", where our taxpayers money is spent on unproductive ventures. Why can't that money be redirected for disease research? That would benefit everyone not just a few. It's very difficult reliving the past just to correct someone greed instead of doing the "right thing" in the first place.

I have written Sec.of VA, Joint Services and Blue Water Navy about the proof NARA sent in reguarding Danang harbor. Can anyone else think where else I should write?

I would write to everyone you can think of and explain the entire story - Senators, Representatives, newspapers, etc. Blast the story out there and see what happens - there has to be someone out there who's been in your shoes or can at least sympathize enough to help.

Mark D, I'm so very SORRY if I offended you, I didn't realize you are the one who publishes all the information about the USS King. I was just thinking maybe the government had grants or scholarships to help with the history of the USS King. Seems like the government has money for everything else. I tried to use the mapsite you gave but of course I don't get it.  Thanks for trying to help.

That's OK - the truth is that even though our site looks impressive (and it is) there are only about a dozen people who actively work in various Association positions and only a little more than 100 paying members for financial support. We're a small but very dedicated group.

I really wish there were more government help available, but I'm afraid not. The people I deal with are usually very friendly and helpful, but they have to operate within the confines of their system.
