Hope everyone is well and safe after our big snow/ice storm. Our area received lots of ice and some snow, but main roads are clear now, secondary roads are still bad.
Some new information for Korean vets from 1968 to 1971 for possible Agent Orange claims.
VA recently published a new Agent Orange regulation concerning Veterans who served in Korea from April 1968 through August 1971 in or near the DMZ. Though the VA has had a policy concerning these veterans for several years, this expands the previous dates and codifies it.
38 CFR 3.307 (a)(6)(iv) A veteran who, during active military, naval, or air service, served between April 1, 1968, and August 31, 1971, in a unit that, as determined by the Department of Defense, operated in or near the Korean DMZ in an area in which herbicides are known to have been applied during that period, shall be presumed to have been exposed during such service to an herbicide agent, unless there is affirmative evidence to establish that the veteran was not exposed to any such agent during that service.
Until next time, take care
