All Vietnam Veterans are eligible for access to VA healthcare. For information on VA healthcare and how to apply: http://www.va.gov/healthbenefits/apply/, by phone at 877-222-VETS, or visit your local VA health care facility.
The VA offers multiple resources to address service-related health issues, including complications from exposure to Agent Orange, and the continuing effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). If you have any conditions that are possibly connected to service in Vietnam, you should contact VA immediately.
Application for VA compensation for service-related disabilities is a separate process from application for healthcare benefits. The process of verification and acceptance can take considerable time and the quicker you get started, the better. For more information on compensation: http://www.benefits.va.gov/compensation/

In addition you can obtain assistance from your County Veterans Service Officer (listed in your phone book under county offices), and/or a local Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, or Vietnam Veterans Association chapter.
