VA Publishes Final Regulation to Aid Veterans Exposed to Agent Orange
VA Health Care and Benefits Provided for Many Vietnam Veterans
Veterans exposed to herbicides while serving in Vietnam and other areas will have an easier path to access quality health care and qualify for disability compensation under a final regulation that will be published on August 31, 2010 in the Federal Register by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The new rule expands the list of health problems VA will presume to be related to Agent Orange and other herbicide exposures to add two new conditions and expand one existing category of conditions.

Experiencing The Stories
The centerpiece will be the interactive Wall of Faces projecting personal images, media footage, oral histories and letters home. Providing an unfiltered glimpse into the reality of lives lost, the faces behind the names on The Wall will be featured on the veterans’ birthdays.
A nationwide campaign is under way to collect a photo for every name. Have a photo or story to share? Upload your photo here
Support The Center
Like The Wall itself, the second-most visited site in Washington, D.C., The Education Center will be built entirely with private funds donated by the American people. Please help us ensure the stories behind every name live on. Please DONATE
