AO Ships list updated Nov 2017

Question

This is the most recent update to the VA's AO ship's list ( to include Coast Guard vessels, etc)

These ships and vessels are on this list (which sure has grown over the years) in part  because many Blue Water Veterans were able to prove their exposure to AO ,while shipboard, in many ways. This 2016 article tells more about that:

Hello Berta and fellow Vets:

A retired Navy Vet's wife struck up a conversation with me. The hubby is in bad shape with AO conditions and she asked me to do research. Of course, Hadit is my first go to place!!!

There is a new updated Ships List as of 7/2/2018. The list is named " U.S. Navy and Coast Guard ships that operated in Vietnam" and is found half way down the page on this link: https://www.benefits.va.gov/compensation/claims-postservice-agent_orange.asp

Thanks for the latest list!

I assume he was Blue Water Navy and the Blue Water AO Bill passed the House and needs to pass the Senate.

If his ship is not on the list, he might have a chance under the new Blue Water regulations-but BWN is asking vets to write to their Senators about how this bill should be passed.

VA didnt do the leg work to put ships onto the AO presumptive list- vets did that themselves by doing all they could to prove their ship was close enough to Vietnam, with sailors going onto Vietnam soil and returning to the ship,etc.

A widow I know proved her husband ( whose ship never on the AO list from VA)by proving he had been on a COD transport to Vietnam. She is also one of the most important Blue Water Advocates I know-and the latest on Blue Water Navy legislation is here in our AO  forum.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
