    I should add that the claim has been with the BVA Level 4 or BLJ since Oct 1, 2013 but no activity or updates in the last 6 weeks. Before that every week or two it would be noted that the claim was with the BLJ. Ken

  12. What is the compensation for Prostate Cancer? I am confused. I was in the Army 1964 ~ 1967 but was not in country/ Vietnam. But during my duty station assignment in FT Lewis, WA I was exposed to Herbicides and Pesticides. For years (40 Years) I believed it was AO but DOD claims no AO used at Ft Lewis. But during the time 1.5 years I was exposed to Pesticides used to kill insects and weeds on a live fire training range. That we demo to trainee two times per day how an Infantry Squad would advance with 5 men laying down cover fire. Fast forward 1997 Prostate Cancer surgery to remove Less than one year later 1998 Prostate Cancer has returned 7.5 weeks of radiation treatments. 2003 PSA is rising and I now have Reoccurring Prostate Cancer. I was a patient at National Cancer Institute or NIH in Maryland where every 4 weeks I would fly to NIH as a patient for new cutting edge treatment for Prostate Cancer. I was on two different protocols looking for the wonder drug to cure Prostate Cancer. In 2007 I completed my 21-526 and one claim was for Prostate Cancer I been to the VA hearing process a few months ago. What is the compensation for Prostate Cance?
