The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) maintains a list of U.S. Navy and Coast Guard ships associated with military service in Vietnam and possible exposure to Agent Orange based on military records. This evolving list helps veterans who served aboard ships, including "Blue Water Veterans," find out if they may qualify for presumption of herbicide exposure. VA recently added 22 additional U.S. Navy ships to the presumption of Agent Orange list. For more information including a link to the Alphabetized Agent Orange Ship List, visit the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard Ships in Vietnam webpage.
