Blue Water Navy
Navy Vietnam Veterans who have been denied benefits. Please review this information and call our office for eligibility and next steps to file your claim.
The Blue Water Navy (BWN) Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019 (PL 116-23) extended the presumption of herbicide exposure, such as Agent Orange, to Veterans who served in the offshore waters of the Republic of Vietnam between Jan. 9, 1962 and May 7, 1975. Blue Water Navy Veterans who have previously been denied benefits need to file a new claim in order to be considered.
