Many of our fighting men and women were exposed to a carcinogenic defoliant used in Vietnam known as "Agent Orange". The VA now presumes exposure to Agent Orange if you served in country or in the Brown Water Navy patrolling the Rivers. A claimant need not prove exposure
in these circumstances. Certain Navy Ships are now able to show exposure to agent orange.
Troops stationed in Korea and Thailand may have been exposed as well.
The following is a list of presumed diseases caused by Agent Orange:
Cancer of the Bronchus
Cancer of the Larynx
Cancer of the Trachea
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Various types of Soft Tissue Sarcoma
Type 2 Diabetes
Porphyria Cutanea Tarda
Spina Bifida in children of the Vet
Other Birth Defects
There are other diseases related to Agent Orange exposure. If you previously filed a claim and were denied you may be entitled to re-open your claim
