Unfortunately, the VA released that they still have no definite date for awarding benefits to those veterans who flew the C-123 aircrafts. Those who flew C-123 aircrafts between the 1970’s and 1980’s are not entitled to any benefits regarding Agent Orange. A recent study showed that these reservists may have been exposed due to leftover residue of herbicides in the C-123 aircrafts.
The C-123 aircrafts were used to spray millions of gallons of dangerous herbicides during Operation Ranch Hand in the Vietnam War. Agent Orange has caused many life threatening conditions over the past 40 years. If the VA makes a decision to award benefits to those flying the C-123 aircrafts due to residue exposure, many veterans will get the help they deserve.
What are your thoughts on awarding benefits to over 1,500 people who trained and/or flew on the C-123 and were exposed to Agent Orange?

Thank to Mr. Spencer I was able to get my VA disability claim re-reviewed and given another chance to receive disability. By far he is one of the most professional lawyers I have ever dealt with. So Veterans if you are looking for help with your VA disability claim I would suggest that you hire Macari, Russotto, Spencer, & Balaban. Thanks again for everything.

As a disabled veteran trying to navigate the complexities of the Veterans Administrations regulations, I turned to the law firm of Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban. They helped me understand what I needed to do and prepared and presented to the VA an excellent presentation of my case. I recommend them for your legal needs.
