I have been told that I may qualify for some disability because of the use of agent orange while I was stationed in South Korea in 1967-68. What do I need to do to find out?

 


 

A1: Veterans who served in a unit in or near the Korean demilitarized zone (DMZ) anytime between April 1, 1968 and August 31, 1971 and who have a disease VA recognizes as associated with Agent Orange exposure are presumed to have been exposed to herbicides. These Veterans do not have to show they were exposed to Agent Orange to be eligible for disability compensation for these diseases.

VA and the Department of Defense must determine the Veteran?s unit operated in the DMZ area and the Veteran was physically there.  (AP)  12/2/16

A2: Camp Casey and other Camps on the DMZ are presumptive sites for exposure to Agent Orange.

But, you have to have a disability that is a presumptive to exposure to Agent Orange. Go to the Agent ORange Review and see what diasbilities qualify and if you have one of them then file for it. But, also look at the small print some conditions have a caveate to them. Such as peripheral neuropathy must have been diagnosed within one year of last exposure to Agent Orange.  (CP)  12/19/16
