Disability

I am a disabled vet getting a disability. Does anyone know if the military will accept COPD as a disability? to add to my other problems from a source we call Agent Orange.

  1. Thank you for the reply.

    1. Hi - I can only share with you my own interpretation of what I read from the VA literature. I am going to post a link you may need to copy and paste into your browser: https://www.va.gov/disability/eligibility/ Among the things they mention in that site are "Breathing problems resulting from a current lung condition or lung disease" but it appears you need to link them to your service to qualify. I would suggest taking a look at that website and reading it carefully to see if you think that your situation would qualify under their requirements. Keep us posted, I hope you are able to qualify! ~Melanie (team member)
