In case you missed my posts a couple months ago, here is a reminder that Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans are NOW ELIGIBLE for PCa benefits related to possible Agent Orange exposure. You can contact the VA through va.gov to apply. The application process is relatively simple and straightforward.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, more than 22k Claims have been granted to Blue Water Navy Veterans in 2020. The National Archives is digitizing more than 1,800 deck logs to determine ship locations, which helps VA confirm service. VA estimates there are between 420-560k Vietnam-era Veterans who may be considered Blue Water Navy Veterans
I applied for benefits in February 2020 and received them in July 2020.
