Attention Vets with NHL Claims

We have combined some of the contents of three earlier posts that deal with the Department of Veterans Affairs treatment of claims by Veterans with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. In short, the DVA should immediately process all Vietnam Era Veterans' NHL claims regardless of any other aspects to the claim.

Any member of the Veterans Association of Sailors of the Vietnam War [VASVW] now has the document available to them in the files section of the VASVW site. It is accessible there only to members. We recommend that if you are not a member, join. Membership is absolutely free, and always will be. Click on the big orange VASVW logo on the left sidebar. That will take you to the VASVW site, and click on "join this group", then follow the directions. If you have problems joining, come back here and contact me using the "email me" link also on the left sidebar. I will provide assistance. You do not have to be a Navy Veteran, or even a Veteran at all to join.

As to the DVA, such claims have no business being held under the Haas stay. Such heinous actions by the DVA amount to depraved indifference and a violation of the civil rights of those Veterans not in the Haas category.

The wholesale stoppage of all work on all claims by Navy personnel, including the Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma claimants and all Brown Water Navy Veterans is reprehensible, and a crime against humanity.


”It is a stain on this nation's honor that the Department of Veterans Affairs has become a deadlier and more difficult adversary to the American veteran than any they have ever faced on a battlefield."-- VNVets

"The concept that Agent Orange, and its effects, stopped dead in its tracks at the shoreline is simply too illogical, and too ludicrous to accept. What does that say about the Bush Administration and his Department of Veterans Affairs?"--VNVets

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." --President Abraham Lincoln

"It follows than as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."--President George Washington
