WHAT HAPPENED?

On 29 January 2019, the Federal District Court reversed the BVA and CAVC denials of Mr. Procopio’s claim AND reversed HASS. In addition to Mr. Procopio, this decision restored the Blue Water Navy’s rights and benefits under the Agent Orange Act of 1991. No longer can the VA deny Blue Water Navy Agent Orange claims based on a “boots on the ground” (or lack thereof) requirement.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

If you have any of the listed ailments associated with the “Agent Orange” exposure and were within the Territorial Water of Vietnam, you may be eligible for compensation. If your claim was ever denied due to not having “BOOTS ON THE GROUND”, your denial may be overturned.

WHAT TO DO?

Collect your claim paperwork and discuss your status with your Veterans Service Officer.
