DoD comes up empty-handed in Agent Orange search

Friday - 1/6/2012, 7:16pm EST

Last year the Defense Department spent almost $4 million looking for Agent Orange in South Korea. However, the department didn't find anything.

The investigation began after former soldier Steve House claimed he buried Agent Orange there more than 30 years ago.

Stars and Stripes reports the military spent eight months checking his claim and they found nothing. DoD said there were chemicals buried at Camp Carroll, where House was stationed, but they were removed a year later.
