Filing For Presumptive A.o.



Went to VA to sign up for the Agent Orange and was told since

its only presumptive that the vets ( from Ft. McClellan) we

cannot prove that they were exposed to any herbicides. My god it is

all over the internet about the post and Anniston. This is another slap

in the face for those exposed.

Agent Orange is not a condition. If you have a conditon that is presumptive of agent orange no one can stop you from filing a claim. Since you are already service connect for other conditon you can file a claim using a VA 21-4138 or simply write a letter. As a matter of fact you can file a claim for Agent Orange if you like. Will it be denied, YES! You can file a claim for what ever you want at any time.

It is not Agent Orange - all this deals with the Monsanto Company

in Anniston and Ft MCClellan is toxic.

Here's you best links:

I saw my PCP and she put me in to have the Exam on 29 April. It comes from the C&P

people at the hospital and not out of New Orleans.

Hello Jan,,,,,please understand that if you have a disease that is known to be linked to dioxin , that the VA wants to use the acute and subacute rule with you to deny it. However the fact that chronic diseases are also well known to dioxin it will be up to the Vet to prove the link. You will need to have your medical evidence with a good Independent Medical Opinion that has fully reviewed your evidence , your Service Military and Service Medical records , and any other pertinent evidence such as buddy statements, environmental records to support the NEXUS the doctor will supply. It has to be well written and worded correctly to satisfy the courts and VA. I had posted a link for BVA cases of one vet that prevailed with AO and chronic peripheral neuropathy which is very common. I myself am suffering from this. Search BVA , and Dr. Durham and his compelling statement. You may get it denied but the appeals process is for the arguments of acute/subacute verses chronic. It is a favorite trick the VA uses but actually does not hold water when challenged by competent medical opinions and by records of scientific community. Most Vets do not challenge this rule and many VSOs just do not understand the strength of what I am telling you. Please use the other link to also see that training programs from the 1973 Herbicide Training Seminar will show a large number of posts that showed their representatives that attended. I wish you well in your claim and do not get all hung up with the AO registry as there is plenty to support a Vet other than that. And remember .....NEVER GIVE UP. God Bless. C.C.
