Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick (CCK) forced VA to make public the memorandum used to deny many Thailand veterans’ claims based upon exposure to Agent Orange and/or herbicides. The document shows why the VA has continued to deny Thailand veterans disability benefits based upon Agent Orange exposure. Click here to view the memorandum.

Vietnam-era veterans whose service involved duty on military bases in Thailand anytime between February 28, 1961 and May 7, 1975 may have been exposed to herbicides and may qualify for VA benefits. This includes service at one of the following Royal Thai Air Force Bases (RTAFBs): U-Tapao, Ubon, Nakhon Phanom, Udorn, Takhli, Korat, or Don Muang.

The VA has established presumptive service connection for a number of diseases associated with Agent Orange, including:

  • Type II Diabetes
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Certain Skin Diseases
  • Ischemic Heart Disease
  • Peripheral Neuropathy (if diagnosed within 1 year of discharge)
  • Hodgkin’s Disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Soft Tissue Sarcoma
  • CLL and other B-cell Leukemias
  • Lung and other Respiratory Cancers

If you have one of these diseases, and your service involved duty on military bases in Thailand, then the VA may be required to extend presumptive service connection to you. This could mean you are entitled to substantial VA benefits.
