Service-Connected Disabilities

In the past month ROA staff have been working with participating reservists and the national press about a story on toxic exposure. Several Air Force Reserve and Guard locations have been identified with early age rates of cancer and other medical conditions that may be related to equipment and supplies Air Force men and women use in their military specialty. These same individuals have not been able to get rated as service connected.

Have you ever applied to Veterans Affairs for a service-connected disability?

Let us know by completing this quick two-question survey.
