Greetings Hfloyd. To better answer your question is to Google VA presumption list.

Now if you have any of those symptoms or conditions on that list and if your primary care team or specialty Doc can link it to exposure, or you can prove that you were exposed, then you might have a valid claim.

I have chronic sinusitis. I have deployed multiple times. Chronic sinusitis is on that list.

As far a I know there isn't a specific list of presumptives for jet fuel exposure. There is/was a bill before Congress to carve some out, though.

You can also look on the PACT presumptive list- if you were in any of the areas that have presumptives attached you may not have to attribute it to Jet fuel because your exposure to toxic substances may already be presumed. Depends on when/where you were and what your symptoms are.
