Army Major -response

I was unable to find a reply box to your post.

We have a full Agent Orange forum here.

Many veterans (and even their survivors) have succeeded in getting a disability, not on the presumptive list, service connected due to their proven exposure to AO.

Also Secretary Wilkie is considering a few new presumptives, but we have no idea if  he will even add any to the list.

I wrote to him making a strong argument, as  to the potential for HBP to be added, as well as ischemic stroke and have prepared a personal claim based on the same report a veteran used at the BVA, who also had a strong IMO/IME, and the BVA recently granted his HBP as due to his exposure to AO in Vietnam.

Most veterans with HBP were deemed as having "essential" - a medical term for no know cause- now we have a cause in Vietnam veterans---AO caused it.

 

The report is here:

https://www.nap.edu/read/25137/chapter/2

On page 8 they found there is "Sufficient" evidence that AO caused HBP in Vietnam veterans.

The BVA case and this report is also searchable in our AO forum.
