Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article offers information on how to claim the benefits of Vietnam veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange. It states that Veterans Affairs (VA) must have evidence that the claimant had served in Vietnam on the ground, in the air, or within the inland waterways (Brown Water Navy). Furthermore, it mentions that one cannot receive benefits because he was exposed to Agent Orange, but rather he may receive benefits for a disease that is a result of the exposure.
