Presumptive Service Connections in Vietnam Veterans

Today we’re continuing our series on presumptive service connections with veterans who served in Vietnam, particularly those who have been exposed to Agent Orange.

This means, that when Veterans Disability benefits are at stake for these individuals, certain conditions are automatically believed by the VA to be the direct result of military service because of the nature of the veteran’s experience.

If you served in Vietnam between January 9, 1962 and May 7, 1975, the following conditions have presumed service connections:

  • acute and subacute peripheral neuropathy (that manifested to 10% or more within a year of the last date you were exposed during active service)
  • AL amyloidosis
  • B-cell leukemias
  • chloracne or other acneform disease similar to chloracne (that manifested to 10% or more within a year of the last date you were exposed during active service)
  • chronic lymphocytic leukemia
  • type II diabetes
  • Hodgkin’s disease
  • ischemic heart disease
  • multiple myeloma
  • non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • porphyria cutanea tarda (that manifested to 10% or more within a year of the last date you were exposed during active service)
  • prostate cancer
  • respiratory cancers
  • soft-tissue sarcoma (does not include osteosarcoma, chrondosarcoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma or mesothelioma)

If you’re a Vietnam Veteran who was exposed to Agent Orange and suffer from one or more of the above conditions, the experienced staff of Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, can help you get the benefits you deserve.
