Agent Orange Claims
If you are a veteran who served in Vietnam or near the Korean Demilitarized Zone during Vietnam and you suffer from the following:
Ischemic Heart Disease,
B cell leukemia, Parkinson’s,
Acute and Subacute Transient Peripheral Neuropathy,
Chloracne or other Acneform Disease consistent with Chloracne,
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia,
Diabetes Mellitus (Type 2),
Porphyria Cutanea Tarda,
Respiratory Cancers (cancers of the lung, bronchus, larynx, or trachea) and
Soft Tissue Sarcoma (other than Osteosarcoma,Chondrosarcoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma, or Mesothelioma).
You should file a claim with the Department of Veterans Affairs and/or reopen any prior claim with the DVA regarding the above conditions or those conditions you may have alleged about Agent Orange exposure. Often a veteran may mistakenly believe his/her disorder does not meet one of the presumed medical disorders when it actually does meet the criteria. The meeting of the criteria should be left to a doctor to determine. Even then, a second doctor should be sought to confirm or deny the existence of the condition.
