                                                          Below is a direct copy - paste from Wikipedia  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_Orange

Agent Orange is the code name for one of the herbicides and defoliants used by the U.S. military as part of its herbicidal warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971. It was given its name from the color of the orange-striped 55 US gallon (208 litre) barrels in which it was shipped, and was by far the most widely used of the so-called "Rainbow Herbicides".[1] A 50:50 mixture of 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D, it was manufactured for the U.S. Department of Defense primarily by Monsanto Corporation and Dow Chemical. The 2,4,5-T used to produce Agent Orange was later discovered to be contaminated with 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxin, an extremely toxic dioxin compound. Vietnam estimates 400,000 people were killed or maimed, and 500,000 children born with birth defects.[2]

During the Vietnam War, between 1962 and 1971, the United States military sprayed nearly 20,000,000 US gallons (75,700,000 l) of chemical herbicides and defoliants in Vietnam, eastern Laos and parts of Cambodia, as part of Operation Ranch Hand.[3][4] The program's goal was to defoliate forested and rural land, depriving guerrillas of cover; another goal was to induce forced draft urbanization, destroying the ability of peasants to support themselves in the countryside, and forcing them to flee to the U.S. dominated cities, thus depriving the guerrillas of their rural support base and food supply.[4][5]

The US began to target food crops in October 1962, primarily using Agent Blue. In 1965, 42 percent of all herbicide spraying was dedicated to food crops.[5] Rural-to-urban migration rates dramatically increased in South Vietnam, as peasants escaped the destruction and famine in the countryside by fleeing to the U.S.-dominated cities. The urban population in South Vietnam nearly tripled: from 2.8 million people in 1958, to 8 million by 1971. The rapid flow of people led to a fast-paced and uncontrolled urbanization; an estimated 1.5 million people were living in Saigon slums.[6]

United States Air Force records show that at least 6,542 spraying missions took place over the course of Operation Ranch Hand.[7] By 1971, 12 percent of the total area of South Vietnam had been sprayed with defoliating chemicals, at an average concentration of 13 times the recommended USDA application rate for domestic use.[8] In South Vietnam alone, an estimated 10 million hectares of agricultural land were ultimately destroyed.[9] In some areas TCDD concentrations in soil and water were hundreds of times greater than the levels considered "safe" by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.[10][11] Overall, more than 20% of South Vietnam's forests were sprayed at least once over a nine year period.[5]

I served as Fire Direction Officer with C Btry, 5/4 Arty (155 M109)at Firebase C-2. I agree with Charles Kelley. There doesn't seem to be very much about Artillery units stationed in Northern I Corps.

Keep up the good work.

I served at C-1 Ca Lu and Dong Ha in 69 I am looking for other members of that served with me I contacted David "Mississippi" Wooten a few years ago so would like to contact a few more I cant remember the first names just last names and nick names. Bones from Brocton, MA Hippie?? Goad from TX. Cant remember the cook but we called him Pops he was KIA by incoming at C-1. I was called Chief or Crazy Indian because I am Indian and I was Crazy back then but have mellowed out some in the last 30 yrs.

I was with B-Battery 8/4 in 69. Was a RTO for the FO in April of 69 attached to an ARVN Unit 2/7 Cav was hit at Lang Vi on 25 of April. I have an after action report on this from the Archives of the Fifth Mech's 1/77 Armor it states that a mortar landed near the FDC Track of C/1-40 killing the battery XO and wounding every man in the FDC. I need any information that anyone can give me. Thank You and Welcome Home.

I was the FDC (Fire Direction Control---Chart-Operator) for the entire Artillery (ie. 105,155,175mm and the army's 8" while I was there ! (of course we worked in shifts). 

We pulled out in Sept.1969 and upon arriving at Camp Hansen in Okinawa we had been informed that the rest of our gang had been over-run...The nite before leaving we saw the shit hit the fan...and we saw Puff. What an awesome sight even though my brothers still ATE-IT! I have seen their names on the WALL and brings tears to my eyes. I feel like we deserted them......

MY EXPERIENCES IN VIETNAM ARE FADING SINCE IT'S BEEN ALMOST 30 YRS. I WAS ASSIGNED TO "CHARLIE" BATTARY 8TH BN 4TH ARTY ON THE DMZ AT FIREBASE ALPHA 4 (CON THIEN). WAS IN GUN SECTION 2 DURING SUMMER OF 1971. I HAVE WRITTEN A JOURNAL ABOUT SOME OF MY EXPERIANCES THAT WE ENDURED ON A-4 THAT I THINK YOU WILL FIND INTERESTING. I HOPE TO HAVE IT, PICs AND OUR UNIT PATCHES POSTED ON THIS SITE SOON. WE WERE THE LAST AMERICAN UNIT TO OCCUPY CON THIEN. WE TURNED THE LIGHTS OUT AT A-4 AND THEN CONVOYED TO CHARLIE 1 FROM WHERE WE WERE USED DURING OPERATION LAM SON 719. THE 8/4 STOOD DOWN ON OCT 13, 1971 AND WE JUST CHANGED PATCHES TO THE 2ND BN 94TH ARTY. I WAS TRANSFERED TO THE SERVICE BATTARY AND WE HAULED AMMO TO ALL THE GUN BATTARIES LOCATED ON THE DMZ FOR REST OF MY TOUR. 

I HOPE ALL YOU "REDLEGS" ARE DOING WELL. WE ARE CURRENTLY COMPILING AN E-MAIL LIST OF FORMER MEMBERS OF THE 8/4 AND 2/94. SEE CHARLES WHITE'S ENTRY. THE LIST IS OVER 200 VETS. I HAVE SPOKEN TO A NUMBER OF OUR BROTHERS, WHO LIKE US SURVIVED THAT DREDFUL PLACE - VIETNAM. I AM SORRY LT TOM BOGGS THAT FOR YEARS I THROUGHT IT WAS YOU THAT DIDN'T MAKE IT OFF ALPHA 4. I WAS CONFUSING YOU WITH LT BINKLEY.PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGY. 

WE NEED TO CONTINUE OUR QUEST TO DOCUMENT OUR TIMES ON THE "Z"! TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

I've been looking for this site for a long time. I served at HHB in Dong Ha (Battalion FDC) from March '69 to about August '69. Transferred to A Battery FDC (175 MM-SP) at Rockpile for about a month. A Battery then moved to Camp Carroll for the balance of my tour. Departed March 1970. While at Battalion, I sometimes checked data with your unit at A-4 (Con Thien?). There were 2 main FDC guys for C Battery at Battalion - one of them was Fred Wright. I always admired the accuracy you could get with the 8" guns. Pretty amazing. I made a short visit to your base to deliver some stuff. Way too spooky a place for me. 

Let me know if any of this rings any bells. 

Sincerely, Sp-4 Fred B. James (13E20)  San Antonio, Texas

They say lighting don't strike in the same place, well it does. I'm sending this out in hopes that it will help someone else not to have to go though what I have. There is a Flu and cold medicine on the market call Coricidin, they are red pills that has fell into our Kids hands. It took my Grandson's life yesterday here in Vancouver and one more 15 year old boy this month, the local newspaper stated it started in Seattle in Sept. of this year and is under investigation, but I would ask each and everyone to talk to your teenagers and grandkid about this problem and not have to go though what I'm going though. Please pass this to everyone you know. Thanks Tommy

I and others are trying to compile a list of those who served in the 8th Bn 4th Arty at anytime in Vietnam.  I spent the calendar year 1968 with the 8th 4th Arty.  My first 4 months in 1968 were at Dong Ha.  My first title was Batallion Assistant Commo. Officer, and whatever other junk assignment deserving of a new Lt. in country.  In late April I was assigned to B Battery of the 8th 4th, at Hill 10, Hill 65, and An Hoa, which was West of Danang; then in my last week I went back to Dong Ha where I was processed to return to the states.

We are looking for all who served with the 8/4th Arty. For information check
