Blue Water Navy.  “The Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019 (P.L. 116-23) is the most recent action taken by Congress to grant disability compensation benefits to veterans exposed to Agent Orange, a combination of tactical herbicides used by the U.S. military in Vietnam. Earlier legislation directed the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide some veterans with VA benefits for specific disabilities without requiring proof of actual exposure to Agent Orange. …The act requires VA to grant the presumption of exposure to herbicide agents to veterans who served on U.S. Navy or Coast Guard vessels off the coast of Vietnam.”  FOR MORE DETAILS SEE: Expansion of Benefits to Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans, Congressional Research Service, Report IF11368, November 20, 2019.
