Veterans' Diseases Associated with Agent Orange

VA assumes that certain diseases can be related to a Veteran's qualifying military service. We call these "presumptive diseases."

VA has recognized certain cancers and other health problems as presumptive diseases associated with exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides during military service. Veterans and their survivors may be eligible for benefits for these diseases

If he gets all his medical care from the VA, stop in at any Vet Service Organization (DAV, VFW, VVFW or my choice Marine Corps League), ask a rep to file an FDC with your shopping list of recently Diagnosed conditions.

He a Nam Vet (Boots on the Ground) so he'll get Nehmer'd for anything even remotly associated with AO. Let the VA figure it out. With the FDC Claim, you should have a Decision and possible SMC S (1) Housebound Award ($34?.00 per mos) within 4 - 6 months.

Not the most popular topic, having an Autopsy, is somewhat crucial. My brother-in law passed away from Cancer back in 15. Spent the last month in VA Hospis, they took great care of him. For what it's worth, if a Vet dies in a VA hospital, the requested Autopsy is free and there are a couple other financial perks as well, that aren't available if he dies in a private hospital.

KEEP IN MIND, the widow/er of a Vet will lose all Comp/Pension/DAV Property Tax Exemption Bennies, if she/he remarries, another distasteful subject.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
