The VA has made a list of Presumptive conditions in which the time of service of the veteran and location is taken into account and provided a generalized minimum rating based upon those conditions.


  • Agent Orange (Now Includes "Blue Water Navy" Veterans)
  • Gulf War
  • Radiation
  • ALS
  • POW
  • Camp Lejeune (Contaminated Water)
  • Exposed to burn pits? Here’s three things you should know about the Burn Pit Registry:
  • Registry participants can get a free medical evaluation to discuss their concerns and completed questionnaire with a knowledgeable VA provider. Call a local Environmental Health Coordinator today to schedule your evaluation.
  • Joining the registry is faster than ever. We’ve updated the eligibility verification process—greatly shortening or eliminating previous delays resulting from manual eligibility checks.
  • The registry is not just for Post-9/11 Veterans.
  • Many Veterans who deployed after 1990 qualify.
