Re: Agent Orange and Navy Vets

Served off the coast of Vietnam on the carrier Oriskany CVA-64 for one full tour 1967-68 and one partial tour in 69 before flying off the ship at the end my service in July 69. I have a form of Leukemia (CLL). Just filed claim with VA and they have officially denied me – stating “No record of service in Vietnam” and also stating that I need to explicitly prove I was exposed to keep my case open. My DD214 clearly shows the service – are they using the boots on the ground argument or are they really denying that I served off the coast? Any ideas of how to pursue this? Good Luck to all. Mark.
