The Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) recently implemented the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California’s decision to re-adjudicate previously denied claims as applied in Nehmer vs. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. What this means for veterans is that if you served in the Republic of Vietnam during the period beginning January 9, 1962, and ending on May 7, 1975, you will be presumed to have been exposed to an herbicide agent. Agent Orange and other herbicides used in Vietnam during that time period have been linked to certain cancers and other health problems. The following link has a list of the presumptive herbicide related conditions:
