I WAS DRAFTED INTO THE ARMY IN DEC, 1968. I SPENT 14 MONTHS

Customer Question

I WAS DRAFTED INTO THE ARMY IN DEC, 1968. I SPENT 14 MONTHS IN VIETNAM. A FELLOW VETERAN TOLD ME THAT BECAUSE OF MY VIETNAM SERVICE, I QUALIFY FOR A MONTHLY STIPEND. COULD THIS BE TRUE?WHEN I WENT THROUGH THE VA INTAKE PROCESS, I WAS ASKED IF I WANTED TO APPLY
FOR ' AGENT ORANGE' EXPOSURE COMPENSATION. I TOLD THEM NO, I WAS PRETTY SURE I WASN'T STATIONED IN AN AREA WHERE IT WAS APPLIED AND I DIDN' WANT TO TAKE MONEY FOR SOMETHING I WASN'T QUALIFIED TO RECEIVE.I SAY ALL OF THIS BECAUSE I FEEL THE SAME ABOUT THIS, BUT I WILL ADMIT THAT ANY COMPENSATION THAT WOULD BE AVAILABLE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED
