    I am a Vietnam Veteran also. I was diagnosed with MDS in November 2021. I applied to the VA for a disability based on a diagnosis of MDS after having served in Vietnam in 1971-72. My application was based on presumptive Agent Orange exposure. The VA denied my disability application because MDS is not a presumptive disease associated with Agent Orange. The VA informed me that they would reconsider if I could provide scientific proof that Agent Orange can cause MDS. Naturally I can not do that.
