Agent Orange Claims

Agent Orange ClaimsPlane Spraying Agent Orange in Vietnam

Agent Orange Claims have overwhelmed the Veterans Administration for years. Any troop that put “boots on the ground” in Vietnam is  considered to have been exposed to Agent Orange and may be entitled to a VA Claim.  Some troops may have also been exposed in Korea near the DMZ.

One misconception about Agent Orange Claims is that veterans are eligible for veterans benefits simply because they were exposed.  An Agent Orange Claim can be won if: (1) the veteran can show exposure, (2) the veteran has an impairment the VA considers to be from Agent Orange exposure, and (3) the veteran has  an honorable discharge.
