Agent Orange - Sprayed and Betrayed: The Truth About Agent Orange in Okinawa

John Bates

Most everyone experiences life-changing events - large or small - that forever shape their view of the world. For me, it was the discovery of my biological parents several years ago and all the blessings that have flowed from that discovery. Social media is rightfully criticized for its negative effects on society, but I credit social media for the rude awakening I received in 2023 when I happened across a social media group dedicated to "Okinawa and Agent Orange". Since I was stationed in Okinawa the group's title caught my eye. Thus began a long journey down a rabbit hole that shattered my conception of military service and exposure to deadly poisons. It was quite a sobering revelation. What I have learned should shock the conscience of every American.

I am justifiably proud of my service in the USAF and wouldn't trade my time Okinawa for all the sake in... Okinawa. That said, there are inconsistencies in the documents included here that I found disturbing. Over the years I have developed a keen sense for what we Texans jokingly refer to as "pasture pudding", and I have opined on some of these assertions. In the end, it is my hope that the DoD, the Veterans Administration, the Pentagon, and the citizens of Okinawa will find the information useful.
