September 17, 2008 No. 08-93

FALLS CHURCH, Va. – The Department of Defense Force Health Protection and Readiness Directorate (FHP&R) has launched the Chemical-Biological (CB) Warfare Exposures Web site to provide Service members, veterans, their families and the public with information on the testing of chemical and biological warfare agents from 1942 to 1975. The Web site presents sections on World War II, Project 112/SHAD (Shipboard Hazard and Defense), and the Cold War.

To evaluate the ability of U.S. forces to fight on a chemical and biological battlefield, DoD conducted testing programs. In some programs Service members were present but not test subjects and in other programs they were volunteer human subjects. This testing ended in 1975. DoD has been actively engaged in an extensive search of official records to find the names of veterans who may have been exposed to the chemical or biological agents. DoD plans to complete the search in 2011, but will pursue any leads from veterans or others who may have information.

The Service member names identified by DoD, along with specific exposure information, are provided to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The VA then notifies the individuals of their potential exposure, provides treatment if necessary, and adjudicates any claim for compensation. For privacy reasons, the Web site does not contain the names of the veterans exposed.

Veterans who believe that they may have been exposed or who would like more information are advised to contact DoD via e-mail at: CBWebmaster@tma.osd.mil, or call DoD’s contact managers at (800) 497-6261, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Eastern Time. Veterans call also write to DoD at: Force Health Protection and Readiness, ATTN: CB Exposure Manager, 5113 Leesburg Pike, Suite 901, Falls Church, VA 22041.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
