The Blue Water Navy (BWN) Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019

Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, Veterans who served as far as 12 nautical miles from the shore of Vietnam, or who had service in the Korean Demilitarized Zone, are presumed to have been exposed to herbicides, such as Agent Orange, and may be entitled to service connection for any of the 14 conditions related to herbicide exposure.

For additional information go to the www.va.gov and search Agent Orange, Navy Blue water, it will list all the conditions related to Agent Orange.

If you are from Massachusetts each City and Town in the State has a Veterans Agent ( VSO ) and can assist you with this or any other claim or VA Health Care enrollment. Just call your City or Town Hall and ask to speak to the Veterans Agent.
