The Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxins (PACT) Act not only benefits Gulf War Veterans but Vietnam Veterans as well. If you were exposed to Agent Orange, as so many of us were, and have been diagnosed with Hypertension, (in addition to all the other illnesses) you can now file a claim (or additional claim) for disability benefits. Hypertension has now been added to the list of presumptive conditions, which means it automatically qualifies through the establishment of law. You don't have to argue with the VA, just provide the requested verification.
