The VA has not yet begun to process claims based on the Agent Orange causes added to the presumptive list the beginning of this year.  If you have bladder cancer, hypothyroid disease or Parkinsonism, please see a veteran’s service officer to see if you should file a claim.  All of us should contact our legislative representatives to ask them to force the VA to get moving on this, and the claims for the Blue Water Navy and the research on the injuries suffered by the children of veterans.

Are you aware of SFA members who are not doing so well?  Please send their contact information to
