Blue Water Sailors Exposure to Agent Orange

As a retired U.S. Navy veteran who served on board a naval ship plying the waters off the coast of Vietnam during the Vietnam Conflict under “Operation Market Time,” I recommended Terrell • Hogan republish this article because this news article may be of interest and beneficial to those Blue Water veterans who may have been exposed to the chemical herbicide Agent Orange while serving in the waters off of Vietnam, and who may have developed diseases related to that exposure.

Although the government may appeal this ruling, the ruling potentially opens the door for veterans to file disability claims if they have a disease related to Agent Orange exposure. This could result in them being entitled to both medical and financial veteran’s disability benefits.
