[T]he government’s interest in veterans cases is not that it shall win, but rather that justice shall be done, that all veterans so entitled receive the benefits due to them.” Barrett v. Nicholson, 466 F.3d 1038, 1044 (Fed.Cir.2006)

Institute of Medicine 2012 Report - Covered In-Country Issues Only!
Many point to the 2012 Institute of Medicine Agent Orange Report as somehow disagreeing with non-Vietnam herbicide exposure claims. Nothing could be farther from the truth! The VA assigns specific goals to the Committee ("Charge to the Committee") which restricts what is to be addressed. Thus, proof upon proof could be offered on various topics such as Blue Water Navy or C-123 exposures, and note will be made of the off-topic presentations but nothing done by the Committee nor commented upon!
