VA releases DoD’s revised list of Agent Orange testing and storage locations
During the Vietnam era, the U.S. military used Agent Orange and other tactical herbicides for mission-related defoliation in certain environments. These tactical herbicides were tested or stored on some military bases outside of Vietnam, including in the United States.
The Department of Defense (DoD) recently revised its list of these locations by thoroughly reviewing the records for testing, application, transportation, and storage of tactical herbicides outside of Vietnam. This was a long-term collaboration with other government agencies, including VA.
VA posted the new list online. You can view the list on the web organized by location inside or outside of the U.S. or by date. You can also view a spreadsheet containing all herbicide test and storage locations by location and date.
If your location and time frame is on the list and you were previously denied disability based on herbicide exposure compensation, you can file a supplemental claim.
If you believe you were exposed to Agent Orange or other tactical herbicides and have a condition related to exposure to Agent Orange, you can file a disability claim.
