Judges will hear arguments in lawsuit over ‘Blue Water’ Vietnam Veterans’ Agent Orange benefits

November 30, 2019, ConnectingVets.com, Abbie Bennett 

Twelve “Blue Water Navy” Vietnam Veterans have died since Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie issued a stay on processing their Agent Orange disability claims, an advocacy group told Connecting Vets Wednesday. 

On Friday, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments in a lawsuit filed by a Veterans nonprofit group, Military Veterans Advocacy Inc. (MVA), asking that the delay on processing those claims ends. The delay affects more than 400,000 Veterans or surviving family members who could be eligible for benefits, according to VA.
