Agent Orange Exposure
Veterans who served in the Vietnam War and were exposed to Agent Orange, a poisonous herbicide, have suffered terrible illnesses. The medical conditions most often associated with exposure to Agent Orange include:
- Type II diabetes
- Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Prostate cancer
- Lung cancer
- Parkinson’s disease
- Ischemic heart disease
There are three qualifications for receiving benefits for Agent Orange exposure:
1 You must have served in Vietnam between Jan. 9, 1962 and May 7, 1975. If you have served within this period of time, you do not have to prove actual exposure to Agent Orange or another herbicide.
2 You must show that you are at least 10 percent disabled by one of the diseases or residuals from diseases recognized by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as linked to Agent Orange.
3 For some of the recognized non-cancer diseases, you may need to show that it manifested itself in the period from your last day of service in Vietnam.
