Help ProPublica Research More Than 700 Navy Ships That Served in Vietnam

Vietnam veterans need historical records to get Agent Orange benefits, but the documents are often scattered. Help us collect them in one spot.

Vietnam veteran Dale Worcester, who served aboard the gasoline tanker U.S.S. Tombigbee from 1966 to 1967, emailed ProPublica recently looking for a connection. He wrote: “Do you have any other Tombigbee crewmen that you have made contact with on this Agent Orange [inquiry]?”

The “inquiry” he referenced is a survey ProPublica and The Virginian-Pilot launched to investigate the impact Agent Orange has had on the health of vets and their family members. Worcester was one of more than 800 Navy vets who have filled it out, with nearly 4,000 stories submitted in total. But a query to the database found only one entry for the Tombigbee. It was Worcester’s.

Yet, there’s information out there — on the Internet and in the veteran’s hands. A quick Google search of his ship produced a photo archive, a history of the ship and a crew roster spanning nearly two decades. These types of links have helped us connect with veterans similar to Worcester.

Help Us Investigate

If you’re a veteran, the child of a veteran, or another family member tell us about how you believe Agent Orange exposure has impacted your health or family’s health.

There is also more detailed information available, including deck logs, official command histories, and other documents that Vietnam veteran sailors often need to obtain Agent Orange benefits from the Department of Veteran Affairs. Nearly 350 ships have been added to a list used by the VA to determine who is eligible for benefits; 40 years after the war, additional ships are still being added as new information is submitted to the VA.

This got us thinking about how we could organize information on specific ships or units in Vietnam, and invite veterans to help share their knowledge with us.

Based on information from the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Association and the VA, ProPublica compiled a list of more than 700 Navy ships that either saw combat in Vietnam or whose activities may have exposed it to Agent Orange. We are asking veterans to help us compile information for each of these ships by annotating the list below with information about related records, active veteran’s organizations or anything else they know that could help others document their own wartime experience.

Did you serve on one of these ships, or have information that could help veterans who did?

We’re using an annotation tool called Genius to collect information by ship. Share what you know by highlighting specific ships in the list below and annotating them with your comments, or see what others are sharing by clicking on the highlighted entries. Here are some helpful tips for working with this list.

How to update this list

1. Add your notes to a ship: Use your cursor to highlight the ship you served on or have information about. Once you’ve highlighted it, you’ll see a little icon above the highlight, click that. This will bring up the annotation box. You’ll have to sign in to share, and can either create a Genius account or sign in with your preferred social media account. Once logged in, you can start annotating.

2. Add to an existing entry: If a ship is already highlighted, that means someone has added notes already. To add your own comments or questions, click the highlight and you’ll see a “reply” box beneath the existing notes on the right hand side of the page. Enter your name and email to reply with additional information about this ship.

What to share

1. Basic information about your ship and fellow veterans: We’re especially interested in Facebook groups about your ship or crew, websites dedicated to the ship, reunion sites, crew lists, and any other relevant online resources. Sharing this type of information will help us reach out to veterans to learn more about generational effects of Agent Orange.

2. Any information regarding Agent Orange and your ship: This may include articles you’ve read about your potential exposure, resources you’ve found that helped you navigate the VA when seeking benefits, or any evidence (including deck logs) that helps documents the ship’s location and your potential exposure. Sharing this type of information may also help veterans with their benefits claims.

The list of ships below includes the Vietnam activities that the VA accepts as incidents of exposure to Agent Orange to that ship’s sailors. For some ships, the VA shows no activities that potentially exposed them to Agent Orange. That means those stationed aboard these ships would not qualify for Agent Orange benefits. Those ships are noted.

Note: If you see any issues with the ship name or number, if you believe a ship should be on this list but isn’t, if you have any issues annotating a ship, or have documents you’d like to share but not post publicly, email AgentOrange@ProPublica.org.

We are working on compiling similar lists to annotate for the other branches of the military. Stay tuned.
