Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation. This means that qualified military retirees with 20 or more years of service that have "combat related" VA-rated disability will no longer have their military retirement pay reduced by the amount of their VA disability compensation. Instead they will receive both their full military retirement pay and their VA disability compensation. The following is a summary of Combat-Related Special Compensation:� Combat-Related Special Compensation Eligibility� The Value of the CRSC Benefit� The Application ProcessOnce a military retiree has been determined to be qualified they will receive their regular retirement pay plus an additional sum based on their VA disability rating.Back to Top Combat-Related Special Compensation EligibilityThe following CRSC eligibility requirements apply:In order for members to be eligible for CRSC, they must meet all of the following criteria:� Receive military retirement pay for one of the following reasons:� Served on Active Duty, the Reserves, or National Guard with 20 years of creditable service;� Served on Active Duty, the Reserves, or National Guard and is also a permanent medical retiree (Chapter 61) regardless of years served;� Served on Active Duty, the Reserves, or National Guard and is classified as a Temporary Disability Retirement List retiree regardless of years served; or� Served on Active Duty, the Reserves, or National Guard and is classified as a Temporary Early Retirement Act retiree with 15-19 years served.� Have 10% or greater VA rated injury that is combat-related.� Military retirement pay is reduced by VA disability payments (VA Waiver).� Must be able to provide documentation that injury was a result of one of the following:� Purple Heart� Armed Conflict� Simulating War� Hazardous Service� Instrumentality of War� Agent Orange� Radiation Exposure� Gulf War� Mustard Gas or LewisiteBack to Top The Value of the CRSC Benefit:The CRSC monthly payment ranges from $133 to over $3200.

government has awarded compensation to the ailing former marine at the center of allegations thatAgent Orange was dumped on Futenma Air Base in Okinawa. On 10 AUG the Board of Veterans� Appealsruled that retired Lt.

Col. Kris Roberts, chief of maintenance at the installation in the early 1980s, haddeveloped prostate cancer due to �exposure to hazardous chemicals.� The presiding judge based the decisionon evidence including medical reports, statements and �photographs of barrels being removed from theground.� However, the carefully worded ruling avoids specific reference to Agent Orange, which thePentagon denies was stored on its Okinawa bases.Roberts is the first veteran known to have won compensation for exposure on Futenma, and now he isurging the military to come clean about what really happened at the air base.

�The Marine Corps has a moraland ethical obligation to alert others who may have been exposed,� he said in a telephone interview.According to Roberts, he was ordered in 1981 to investigate high chemical readings detected in waste waterrunning from the installation into neighboring communities in and around Ginowan, the city that surroundsFutenma.

After checking the area of concern near one of the base�s runways, Roberts and his team unearthedmore than 100 chemical barrels, some marked with the tell-tale orange stripes used to label defoliants. Onorders from Futenma�s top brass, Roberts says the barrels were moved by Okinawan base workers to anundisclosed location. After the discovery, Roberts developed a number of serious illnesses, including heartdisease and prostate cancer.Roberts, now a state representative in New Hampshire, told The Japan Times that the Marine Corps has aduty to track down agent orange updates 2016 pay chart U.S.

service members and Japanese base employees who handled the toxic barrels.He also called on U.S. Forces Japan to inform local residents. �The base�s drainage pipes distributed thecontaminated water all around the civilian communities near Futenma � not only in Ginowan city.

USFJneeds to warn them of the dangers, and doctors need to look for clusters of diseases similar to the ones Ihave,� he said. Asked whether USFJ would notify others who may have been poisoned, Michael Ard, directorof the MCIPAC (Marine Corps Installations Pacific) Public Affairs Office, referred comment to the Officeof U.S.

Marine Corps Communication, which had not replied by the time of publication. Tiffany Carter,USFJ media relations chief, likewise declined immediate comment.Such complacency does not surprise Manabu Sato, a professor in political science at OkinawaInternational University, which is situated adjacent to the Futenma base.

�All available data regarding thecontamination must be presented to Okinawan communities � but the U.S. government will not do so, norwill the Japanese government demand such action. Both governments want to conceal any past transgressionscommitted by the U.S. military on Okinawa so as not to fire up anti-U.S. military sentiment,� he said. Thetacit admission of toxic contamination at Futenma will be particularly troubling for the U.S. government. Theair base has long been a thorn in the side of U.S.-Japan relations.

Okinawans have long demanded the closureof Futenma Air Station, but these latest allegations of contamination on the base raise fears that even after itsplanned closure and the relocation of many of its facilities to Henoko in the northeast, the land at Futenmawill be too contaminated to use for years, if not decades.According to publicly available Department of Veterans� Affairs records, more than 200 U.S. vets believethey were poisoned by Agent Orange while serving in Okinawa.

Their sicknesses include multiple myeloma,Parkinson�s disease and peripheral neuropathy � illnesses for which the Department of Veterans� Affairscompensates Americans exposed to defoliants in Vietnam, Thailand and the Demilitarized Zone separatingthe two Koreas.

Although photographs and military documents corroborate claims that defoliants werepresent in Okinawa, Washington maintains that no such evidence exists. To date, only a handful of U.S.veterans have been awarded compensation for exposure to Agent Orange in Okinawa. However, manyveterans hope this will change following the discovery of more than 100 buried barrels in Okinawa City onland that used to be part of Kadena Air Base, the Pentagon�s busiest Okinawa installation during the VietnamWar.

Some of the barrels � the first of which were unearthed in June 2013 � contained traces of AgentOrange�s three ingredients: the herbicides 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D, and the TCDD dioxin.

Japanese andinternational experts assert that the discovery proves military defoliants were present in Okinawa.In June this year, the most recent tests revealed that some of the standing water near the barrels containedlevels of dioxin thousands of times higher than environmental standards permit.

Army photo via WikimediaFive decades after the Vietnam War began�and four decades after it ended� veterans exposed to the chemical brew dubbed Agent Orange are still fighting for compensation and benefits for themselves and their children.And it turns out, not all veterans exposed to Agent Orange are being treated the same. The fight is playing out in the halls of Congress, in courtrooms and at veterans meetings across the country.Agent Orange is the name given to a mixture of toxins used during the Vietnam War to remove leaves from trees and bushes, leaving the enemy more exposed.

(It got its name from the orange stripes on barrels containing it.)All told, about 9 million military personnel served on active duty during the Vietnam era, but most were not stationed in the country. Of those, some 2.6 million were potentially exposed to Agent Orange, the U.S.

Department of Veterans Affairs estimates.The VA began receiving claims related to Agent Orange exposure in 1977, according to a November 2014 report from the Congressional Research Service. In 1991, Congress passed the Agent Orange Act, which said that certain diseases tied to chemical exposure would be presumed to be related to a vet's military service and would make the vet eligible for benefits. The list has grown over time and now includes various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, peripheral neuropathy and heart disease, among others.To get these benefits, though, veterans "must have actually set foot on Vietnamese soil or served on a craft in its rivers (also known as 'brown water veterans')," the Congressional Research Service wrote.

Those who instead spent time on deep-water Navy ships (called "Blue Water Navy" veterans) do not qualify unless they can show that they spent time on Vietnam land or rivers, the report said.Below are various groups who receive Agent Orange benefits or are seeking them.Those Who Served in VietnamSince 2002, more than 650,000 veterans have been granted benefits because of their Agent Orange exposure, the VA estimates. (The department did not keep data prior to then.)According to the VA's annual benefits report, it spent more than $21 billion on compensation for Vietnam era veterans in fiscal year 2013, the most recent year for which data is available.

That compares to $49.2 billion in compensation provided that year for all veterans. That figure includes monthly cash compensation payments, but not health care services.The VA's website says that: "For the purposes of VA compensation benefits, Veterans who served anywhere in Vietnam between January 9, 1962 and May 7, 1975 are presumed to have been exposed to herbicides, as specified in the Agent Orange Act of 1991.

These Veterans do not need to show that they were exposed to Agent Orange or other herbicides in order to get disability compensation for diseases related to Agent Orange exposure."Veterans can obtain information on the VA's website, where they can also file claims for benefits.Air Force Personnel Exposed to Contaminated C-123 AircraftIn June, the VA expanded benefits to Air Force and Air Force Reserve personnel who served as flight, medical and ground maintenance crew members on C-123 aircraft that were used to spray Agent Orange.

These troops, estimated to number between 1,500 and 2,100, will be eligible for benefits if they have a health condition from the same list that applies to on-the-ground troops.This followed a report earlier this year from the national Institute of Medicine, which found that "some reservists quite likely experienced non-trivial increases in their risks of adverse health outcomes.""Opening up eligibility for this deserving group of Air Force veterans and reservists is the right thing to do," VA Secretary Robert McDonald said in a statement in June.Two other senators, Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., had long pushed the VA to provide benefits to C-123 veterans."The effort of these veterans to secure overdue VA care and benefits for harmful exposure to Agent Orange has not been one of the agency's finest hours," Burr said in a statement.

"This frustrating, four year process has laid bare the lengths that the VA will go to disregard science and the facts of the historical record. I am pleased Secretary McDonald has chosen to finally do the right thing for these ailing veterans, but it shouldn't have been this hard or taken so long."Blue Water VeteransThe VA does not currently provide Agent Orange benefits to an estimated 90,000 "blue water" veterans who say they were exposed to the chemical in their drinking water while working on Navy ships off the coast of Vietnam.In 2002, a VA report found there was insufficient evidence to connect health problems of blue water sailors with chemical exposure aboard ships, establishing the basis for denying benefits to vets who didn't set foot in Vietnam.

That decision was upheld by a federal appeals court in 2008. A 2011 report by the Institute of Medicine, however, identified several "plausible routes" for Agent Orange exposure through the water distillation process aboard Navy ships, as well as through the air.Such vets can only receive Agent Orange-related benefits if they show "on a factual basis" that they were exposed to the chemicals during their military service.Following the decision last month to grant Agent Orange benefits to C-123 crews, Sen.

Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said the VA should do the same for blue water Navy vets. Bills introduced in the Senate and House this year would extend presumptive Agent Orange health coverage to sailors who served in territorial waters as far as 12 miles from the Vietnam coast."We owe it to the veterans who bravely served our country and have fallen victim to Agent Orange-related disease to enact this legislation that will provide the disability compensation and healthcare benefits they have earned," Gillibrand said in a statement.In April, the U.S.

Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims struck down VA rules that denied presumptive Agent Orange compensation for sailors whose ships docked at the harbors of Da Nang, Cam Ranh Bay and Vung Tau. Those ports, the court determined, were in the Agent Orange spraying area.

The VA is not appealing the ruling.Those Who Served ElsewhereVeterans who served in or near the Korean demilitariReceiving compensation for Agent Orange exposure can be a complicated experience. Here are some pointers on getting your claim through the system.By Raymond Gustavson, Jr.After I retired from the VA as a rating specialist (RVSR) in October 2003, I began reading dozens of complaints on the Internet from veterans who had had their Agent Orange claims denied.

I also made note of their criticisms about the VA�s foot dragging in getting new disabilities approved. I�m not here to defend the VA or to apologize for its shortcomings.

What I want to do is help you understand the VA claims process by explaining it in plain English. So, let�s get started.If you served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1971, as I did, there is a pretty good chance that you were exposed to Agent Orange. The VA acknowledges that some 20 million gallons of herbicides were sprayed across South Vietnam in an attempt to destroy foliage used to conceal enemy forces and supply lines.

Spraying was also intended to deny access to agricultural crops used by the enemy.If you served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1971, as I did, there is a pretty good chance that you were exposed to Agent Orange.Recently, I tried to determine exactly where all this spraying occurred.

I had always thought it was in the north along the DMZ or along the Laos-Cambodian borders. I was wrong. Dead wrong. The chart I found looked like one of those modern artworks where the painter takes his bucket and throws it at the canvas.

It was a map of Vietnam with long streaks covering the entire country from top to bottom.Agent-Orange related conditionsThe VA has determined that a positive association exists between exposure to herbicides and the subsequent development of 11 conditions.� Chloracne� Non-Hodgkin�s lymphoma� Soft tissue sarcoma (other than osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, Kaposi�s sarcoma, or mesothelioma)� Hodgkin�s disease� Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT)� Multiple myeloma� Acute and subacute peripheral neuropathy� Prostate cancer� Respiratory cancers (cancers of the lung, bronchus, larynx and trachea)� Type 2 diabetes (also known as Type II diabetes mellitus or adult-onset diabetes)� Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)Non Agent-Orange related conditionsOf note, there are numerous conditions that are not associated with Agent Orange.

Service connection for them must, by law, be denied.� Hepatobiliary cancers� Nasal and nasopharyngeal cancer� Bone cancers� Breast cancer� Cancers of the female reproductive system� Urinary bladder cancer� Renal cancer� Testicular cancer� Leukemia (other than chronic lymphocytic leukemia)� Reproductive effects (abnormal sperm parameters and infertility)� Parkinson�s disease� Chronic persistent peripheral neuropathy� Lipid and lipoprotein disorders� Gastrointestinal and digestive disease� (other than diabetes mellitus)� Immune-system disorders� Circulatory disorders� Respiratory disorders (other than certain respiratory cancers)� Skin cancer� Cognitive and neuropsychiatric effects� Gastrointestinal tract tumors� Brain tumors� AmyloidosisWhat to do if your condition is listed as not Agent-Orange relatedIf you have one of these orphaned conditions you can apply for service connection secondary to Agent Orange exposure; however, your claim will be denied.

What should you do?My advice would be to apply anyway, and let the VA deny the claim. Then appeal the decision.

A timely appeal keeps your claim in the mill. Also, keep in mind that somewhere down the road some or all of these conditions might be approved.Exposure to Agent Orange, in and of itself, is not a disability.By having a denial on record, you stand a chance of having it approved retroactively. Additionally, the medical evidence you submitted will always be in your VA claims file. However, if you wait several years to file a claim, you should keep in mind that physicians don�t keep their records forever.

So get your claim submitted before your records wind up in the trash bin or shredder.One additional cautionary word: exposure to Agent Orange, in and of itself, is not a disability. That is, you can receive service connection only for the eleven disabilities listed here.Getting started with your claimSo, what do you need to get your Agent Orange claim approved by the VA?

There are three basic requirements and all of them must be met:� A medical diagnosis of a disease with the VA recognizes as being associated with Agent Orange.

(See list on this page.)� Evidence of service in Vietnam.� Medical evidence that the disease began within the deadline (if any).Proving you actually served in VietnamTo determine if you had service in Vietnam, the rating specialist looks at your DD-214 to see if there is a statement showing dates of in-country service.

If nothing is found on your DD-214, the next source will be your military 201 Claims File which shows records of duty assignments, etc.

A further resort will be your service medical records (SMR�s). Sick-call entries or hospital reports often list the name of a dispensary or hospital and, sometimes, its location in Vietnam. Unfortunately, many such entries list the facility, but not its location. If such a record is found indicating the facility was in Vietnam, however, proof of service in RVN is conceded. The main point is that you must have had your feet on the ground in Vietnam (fly-overs don�t count).

However, a recent court decision has opened the way to those vets who served off the coast of Vietnam.The Vietnam Service Medal is not among those decorations considered conclusive proof of service in RVN.You will note that the Vietnam Service Medal is not among those decorations considered conclusive proof of service in RVN.

This is because the medal was awarded agent orange updates 2016 pay chart anyone who served in Vietnam, the waters offshore, or the airspace above. It was also awarded for service in Thailand, Laos, or Cambodia.Very few claims are granted based on direct exposure to Agent Orange.

On the contrary, the majority of claims granted are based on presumption. Technically speaking, this means the condition did not happen in military service, nor was it aggravated or caused by service, or manifested to a compensable degree within the one-year presumptive period after service. Simply put, if you were in Vietnam it is acknowledged, or presumed, that you were exposed to Agent Orange.Present specific details of your disabilityOnce it has been determined that you served in Vietnam, the VA will send you a Chemical Defoliant development letter, asking about specific details concerning your disability.

Answer the questions to the best of your ability, as this information is necessary to gather evidence and process your claim.After you have responded to the development letter, the VA will obtain any pertinent medical records, and then schedule you for a VA examination to determine the severity of your condition(s).

At the examination, the physician will review your claims file and ask you specific questions about your disability. When he is finished he will write a summary of his findings. The rating specialist in the regional office will transfer these findings to what is called a Rating Decision, and assign a percentage evaluation for each disability granted.

You will then be notified in writing as to the decision.The rating decision, if done properly, will consider service connection for diabetes, for example, on a direct basis, and then again on a presumptive basis.

That is, the rating specialist will peruse your service medical records to see if you had a diagnosis of diabetes while on active duty. Most likely, there was none. Then, the rating specialist will consider a grant of diabetes secondary to Agent Orange exposure.Ratings for diabetes, prostate cancer, and non-Hodgkin�s lymphoma seemed to be the most prevalent conditions among Vietnam veterans, though this is not meant to downplay the significance of the other eight disabilities.

They are all serious conditions for anyone who has them.Specifics of compensationA� Big Room� Breaks� DJ Tools� Dance� Deep House� Drum & Bass� Dubstep� Electro House� Electronica / Downtempo� Funk / R&B� Future House� Glitch Hop� Hard Dance� Hardcore / Hard Techno� Hip-Hop� House� Indie Dance / Nu Disco� Minimal� Progressive House� Psy-Trance� Reggae / Dub� Tech House� Techno� Trance� Tracks� Releases� Charts� Stems� Sounds � Big Room� Agent orange updates 2016 pay chart DJ Tools� Dance� Deep House� Drum & Bass� Dubstep� Electro House� Electronica / Downtempo� Funk / R&B� Future House� Glitch Hop� Hard Dance� Hardcore / Hard Techno� Hip-Hop� House� Indie Dance / Nu Disco� Minimal� Progressive House� Psy-Trance� Reggae / Dub� Tech House� Techno� Trance� Tracks� Releases� Charts� Stems� Sounds Sign in to start using My Beatport!My Beatport lets you follow your favorite DJs and labels so you can find out when they release new tracks.
