For you guys that served in Korea late 60s, early 70s.

Final update on HR 299 from 7th ID Camp Casey & DMZ veteran Gene Clarke. President Donald Trump signed the bill. The bill moves the start date for presumption of exposure to Agent Orange in and near the Korean DMZ to 1 September 1967. That will make about 7,000 more Korea DMZ vets (about half from the 2ID) eligible for the presumption of exposure to AO. It looks like the effective date is 1 January 2020.
