New benefits available for Agent Orange illnesses
from The Legislative Gazette
Vietnam Veterans will soon be able to claim health benefits related to three diseases now being attributed to Agent Orange. The New York state Division of Veteran's Affairs has begun to provide new outreach services for Vietnam era war veterans in response to three diseases being added to the list of presumptive conditions from exposure to Agent Orange. The diseases include B-cell leukemias such as hairy-cell leukemia, Parkinson's disease and ischemic heart disease, bringing a total of 14 conditions assumed to be associated with Agent Orange.
