The Department of Veterans Affairs has updated the Agent Orange ship list of Navy and Coast Guard ships that operated in Vietnam, adding more ships and expanding information for others, for a present list total of 285 ships. Why is this important to know? The list can help Vietnam War-era veterans find out if they qualify for presumption of Agent Orange herbicide exposure when seeking disability compensation for Agent Orange related conditions while serving aboard ships. This includes the so-called “blue water veterans.” The ship list is available on the VA website at www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/agentorange/shiplist/index.asp.
