Agent Orange Registry Health Exam
The Agent Orange Registry exam is a free evaluation from which Veterans can learn about possible health problems related to their military service. Participants receive a health exam, including an exposure and medical history, a physical exam, and laboratory tests if needed. Follow-up evaluations can be conducted if a Veteran has a new health concern or a change in their health status.
Eligible Veterans include Veterans who served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1975, Veterans who served in smaller river patrol and swift boats that operated on the inland waterways of Vietnam (Brown Water Veterans), and some Veterans who served in the Korean Demilitarized Zone, Thailand, or other locations where there is documented use, storage, or testing of Agent Orange and other tactical herbicides.
