AGENT ORANGE CLAIMS NEWS!!

Go to va.gov...get to appeals decisions and type in tonsil cancer for 2008.  Read case numbers 833482 (Detroit VA) dated 9/30/08, 829366 (Waco Texas VA) dated 8/28/08 and 824005 (Oakland Ca VA) dated 7/18/08. All cases before July 2008 were denied. These cases were all granted service connected disabilities! When you file make sure you file for saliva glands burned up, taste buds burned off causing loss of taste and depression from these changes as secondary disabilities. And remember to tip me!! Lol.

I don`t know how they can deny us while granting it for others.

From past experience I suggest you print off claims forms from va.gov site and do your own work.

My husband is going to file a claim as he was recently diagnosed with tonsil cancer.  We have found out they are still researching tonsil cancer and agent orange at the IMO.  Please contact Mary Burr Paxton who is dealing the IMO study for the VA.  She will pass the info along to the VA and hopefully as more people respond they will initiate further study.  So if you haven't contacted her please do so to get added to the list.  I contacted her by e-mail and she responded fairly quickly with further info. Her contact info is:
