James Cripps was the first person to prove his exposure to Agent Orange within the U.S. Cripps was a game warden who was responsible for spraying the area to keep the trails clean. The Army won’t admit, however, to spraying outside their testing area, and rely on soil samples taken in 1994 to show how the areas are clean but they likely don’t include all the areas that were sprayed.

Camp Crockett, located in Fort Gordon, Georgia, was used as a training ground in the late 1960’s, which may have resulted in many veterans with disabilities due to Agent Orange exposure.

From January 1967 to the end of December 1969, the Army was using Camp Crockett as a testing ground for Agent Orange, Agent Blue, and Agent White. Helicopters sprayed the toxins all over a 98-acre spread between “Highway 221 on the west and the artillery range to the east.” Pictures were uncovered of soldiers bathing in a stream fed by Leitner Lake, which is “within a 6 to 8 square mile area” of where toxic mists could have drifted.
