New Agent Orange Disability Causes

Rocky RaabRocky Raab Member Posts: 14,084 ✭✭✭✭

The Senate passed the NDAA which added bladder cancer, hypertension, and some thyroid issues to the agent orange presumption list. If you were exposed to agent orange and have these diseases you are entitled to service connected disability. Get your claim in now if you have not already done so.

I may be a bit crazy - but I didn't drive myself.

    Any blue water sailor whose ship was within 12 miles of shore there qualifies for coverage as well. Concentration was very high, the closer in you were. Desalination units on conventional ships didn't remove it, hence we drank AOcoffee, showered inAOwater, etc. Still hear from shipmates fighting those diseases.
