The system operated from to Veterans with one of a defined list of chronic diseases may also be compensated if these are diagnosed within 1 year of separation from the military.

He said he felt a pull on Friday while moving some boxes but thought nothing of it until it started getting sore over the weekend. Consequently, a precedent was established by VA for causal health consequences associated with specific chemical agents as recommended by IOM. This was not a good idea.
VA acknowledged in the final rule that certain health consequences could be linked directly to mustard gas or lewisite exposure and that a second grouping of health consequences had a suggestive linkage based upon the IOM report.
