Agent Orange Disability Claims

FRA seeks to reverse the VA's policy that denies some Vietnam veterans' disability benefits for diseases related to Agent Orange exposure. Service members who served off the coast of Vietnam, so called "blue water" vets, do not qualify for these benefits unless they can prove they had "boots on the ground."
