Va Turns Its Back On American Military Reserves Exposed To Agent Orange

Question

Last week, Veterans Affairs lawyers rejected the longstanding disability claims of at least 2,100 American military Reserves who were exposed to Agent Orange during their training on old C-123 planes after the Vietnam War. The aircraft had been used to carry the highly toxic herbicide during the war.

The VA took the very restrictive position that despite their exposure to Agent Orange, these Reserves do not qualify as veterans and have not earned presumptive service-connection status required for them to collect disability benefits.
