Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans and Agent Orange Exposure

Although the IOM found several plausible ways by which Blue Water Navy veterans could have been exposed to herbicides, there was not enough information for the IOM to determine whether Blue Water Navy personnel were or were not exposed to Agent Orange.

    I am a 1965-66 Vietnam Veteran. I suffered 4-5 Ischemic Strokes and 1 Ischemic Heart Attack. I was sent to the Minneapolis VA Hospital, were I went for the stroke, by the VA  for a benefits examination. the Benefits Doctor approved me for "service connected", but the Wisconsin VA still denied my claim. What is with this term "assumed exposed", as it pertains to Agent Orange. Most of the time we operated about 10 miles off the coast of Vietnam and Cambodia. We showered, ate and drank water from the area, which our stills made the contaminates stronger.
