Blue Water Agent Orange Decision

Some good news for those that may have been exposed to Agent Orange during the Vietnam War while serving in coastal waters.

Stars and Stripes reports that a court decision issued today, 29 Jan., 2019, has reversed an earlier decision and determined that those that served afloat in the territorial waters of the Republic of (South) Vietnam are entitled to a presumption that they were exposed to Agent Orange.

It is still possible the government may appeal this decision to the Supreme Court.
