UPDATE TO AGENT ORANGE REGISTRY
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs maintains a list of ships that were presumptively exposed to Agent Orange during the Vietnam Era. The VA has recently updated the list of ships that operated in Vietnam to add new ships, expand dates for ships already on the list, and add a new category of small vessels that operated on Vietnam’s inland waterways. The list can help Vietnam-era veterans determine if they qualify for a presumption of Agent Orange exposure when filing for disability compensation for diseases related to Agent Orange exposure.
