  • To all Crew Chief’s servicing UH34’s in Vietnam

    I am currently fighting the VA on claims for damages that I believe was caused by the way we had to service the UH34. I have had several doctors agree that the gasoline we had to use to clean the 34, scarred my lungs, damaged my immune system to where I have none and possibly caused damage to my eyes.
    If there are others with any of these problems that they have had since they returned from Vietnam I would appreciate it if you could contact me and we could fight together.
    Look on the internet to see the damage that exposure to gasoline causes, my VA Rep. is the one that made me aware of this or I would never have found it.
    My email is
    Thanks, Jerry Clark

    Suggest go on line and look up Board of Veterans Appeals. Good search engine and look for gasoline exposure, lung desease or any combination
    it'll pull up all the cases that cover that type of claim
    go through the links and top will say “ claimant claims”. If it fits your situation scroll to the bottom and it'll give judges decision. Either denied, approved or remanded.
    If approved read the whole file. It'll give what was submitted and the judges reasoning for approving
    key is the wording, so important because they are looking for specific terminology and that'll give it to you for your claim.

    Be picky on what case you use and the wording- make sure it fits your situation

    good luck, hope it helps

    by the way there are different flavors of advocates. Some better than others, but no one is better than yourself
