Some veterans who served in the U.S. Navy or Coast Guard during the Vietnam War are now eligible for new disability benefits. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is now providing disability compensation for 14 medical conditions associated with exposure to Agent Orange.

To qualify for these disability benefits, veterans must meet certain criteria, which can be found by clicking here.

Agent Orange: Alphabetized Ships List
If your vessel is not included in the Mobile Riverine Force, ISF Division 93 or listed designations (see "Find Your Ship"), check the alphabetized list of ships below.

To search for your ship, look under the first letter of the formal ship name. For example, if your ship's name is Dennis J. Buckley, look under the letter "D" for Dennis.

Ships will be regularly added to the list based on information confirmed in official records of ship operations. Currently there are 214 ships on this list. Ship not on the list and you think it should be?
