Veterans Exposed to Toxic Chemicals Fight for VA Benefits

Camp Lejeune veterans are not alone in battling the VA for health coverage and disability benefits for diseases they believe were caused by toxic chemical exposures in the military. Former Air Force crews who flew C-123 transport planes contaminated with Agent Orange during the Vietnam War are continuing to fight for compensation for illnesses they believe were caused by the exposure.

And thousands of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who say they have health problems caused by breathing toxic fumes from open burn pits used during the wars say they regularly are denied disability benefits by the VA.
