Thailand Military Bases
If your service involved regular daily security duty on the fenced-in perimeters of a U.S. military base in Thailand or Royal Thai Air Force Bases between January 9, 1962, and May 7, 1975, and you have an associated disease, you may be eligible for an acknowledgment of Agent Orange exposure and benefits.
Are you eligible for compensation?
- You served perimeter security duty on RTAF bases in Thailand, including U-Tapao, Ubon, Nakhon Phanom, Udorn, Takhli, Korat, or Don Muang.
- You served perimeter security duty while stationed on a U.S. Army installation in Thailand.
Who is covered
You, your dependents and survivors
- Heath care
- An Agent Orange Registry health exam
How it works
To receive benefits for diseases associated with Agent Orange exposure based on Thailand service, VA requires documents indicating daily work duties, performance evaluation reports, or other credible evidence showing the required perimeter security duty (for example, as a dog handler, a member of a security squadron, a member of a military police unit, or other related duties indicating regular security activity on a fenced-in perimeter).
- Need help determining exposure? VA will help you determine potential exposure to Agent Orange after you file a claim for disability benefits.
