What Are The Most Common Agent Orange Conditions

This article covers the most common Agent Orange conditions. There is an extensive list of conditions related to Agent Orange and here we deal with the most prominent.

During much of the Vietnam War, the military used defoliants which were used to help expose enemy sanctuaries and supply routes. The manufacturing process for these herbicides, such as Agent Orange, contaminated the chemicals with several types of dioxins. Veterans who served in Vietnam between January 9, 1962, and May 7, 1975 were presumptively exposed to such poisons.  

Lawmakers recently expanded this presumption to include “blue water” Veterans who served on certain offshore naval vessels, such as aircraft carriers. The presumption also applies to Veterans who served near the Korean DMZ from September 1, 1967, to August 31, 1971, certain air bases in Thailand between 1962 and 1975, and on or near C-123 aircraft during certain periods of time.

There is a difference between a presumption and a conclusion. While the VA will assume that certain diseases can be related to a Veteran’s military service when exposure has been established, Veterans must still produce the evidence necessary to support a finding in their favor. Since the VA has a long history of denying such claims, a good VA appeals lawyer could make a tremendous difference.
