MISSOULA, Mont. — Montana’s U.S. senators fired off letters to the Veterans Affairs secretary asking Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans get benefits soon.
President Trump approved the benefits last month.
But that new law doesn’t go into effect until January 1, 2020.
Blue Water Vets are those who were exposed to Agent Orange, but not included in medical benefits because they were not on land at the time.
