Home Q & A Agent Orange Why should Veterans participate in the Agent Orange Registry Examination?
Answers
  • Accepted Answer

    Sometimes Veterans think they are in good health, but are worried that exposure to Agent Orange and other substances may have caused some hidden illnesses. A complete medical examination that does not show any problems can be reassuring. All examination and test results are entered into the confidential Agent Orange Registry and also are kept in the Veteran’s permanent medical record.

A veteran’s family must request a United States flag.

A flag is provided at no cost to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased veteran. Generally, the flag is given to the next of kin. Only one flag may be provided per veteran. Upon the request of the family, an “Application for United States Flag for Burial Purposes” (VA Form 21-2008) must be submitted along with a copy of the veteran’s discharge papers. Flags may be obtained from VA regional offices and most U.S. Post Offices.
