Blue Water Navy Veterans

& Surviving Spouses

If you or your deceased spouse served in the waters of Vietnam, you may be eligible to receive benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

There has been a change to the law concerning how the VA recognizes Veterans who served in the waters of Vietnam and their exposure to Agent Orange. This corrects a long-standing injustice affecting our Nation’s Veterans and their surviving spouses.

If you believe this change affects you or someone you know, please contact our office for more information. We are here to assist you and answer all of your questions.
