This site is designed to assist you in obtaining Agent Orange benefits.
Agent Orange can very well effect all of the AVEL soldiers. Having served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1971 each of you might suffer from one of the many Agent Orange related symptoms and effects. Many of the AVEL soldiers flew on missions in Vietnam and Cambodia where the LZ was sprayed by Agent Orange. AVEL soldiers worked on dust covered choppers and the dust covered avionics boxes were on the work benches.
VA’s policy is that if you were in Vietnam one day, you can claim that any and all of the illnesses on the list was caused by Agent Orange and therefore you are entitled to VA medical services and monetary compensation.
If you have any of the symptoms listed in the sites shown below, go to VA for medical attention and file for compensation. I had my civilian MD check for prostate cancer. I had cancer and I started treatment. I also filed for VA compensation and payment started retroactive to the filing date…..
Here are a few sites that have information on Agent Orange. There are many more…..
Please feel free to log your Agent Orange related concerns on this site and encourage everyone to seek VA medical attention. If you have a problem in getting benefits maybe some of us can help you.
Thanks for your service.
