HUGE news for Blue Water Veterans!

Posted to Acton Veterans' Newsletter by James MacRae

A federal Court ruled this past Tuesday that Vietnam Veterans who served on ships offshore during the war are eligible for benefits to treat illnesses linked to exposure to the chemical herbicide Agent Orange.  There are a great number of cancers and other diseases directly related to this exposure and you may be entitled to compensation. 

Prostate cancer, lung cancer and other respiratory cancers, diabetes mellitus type 2, ischemic heart disease, and Parkinsons are just some of the diseases recognized by the VA that are from exposure to agent orange.

For any blue water Veterans curious about these benefits please contact my office at 978-929-6614 or at vso@acton-ma.gov
