Entitlement to Service Connection Granted for the Cause of the Vietnam Veteran's Death - Compensation Awarded to Surviving Spouse

Veteran served in the Republic of Vietnam and received the Vietnam Service Medal with two Bronze Service Stars, the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, and the Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross Unit Citation and he was exposed to Agent Orange. Following his death in 2014, the VA denied service connection for his death and denied Dependency & Indemnity Compensation (DIC) to his surviving spouse. Over the course of three years, Colonel (Retired) Rick Rousseau argued the case before the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA) and submitted several written briefs in support of the case. On May 21, 2019, the BVA finally granted entitlement to service connection for the cause of the Veteran's death and the surviving spouse will now receive DIC retroactive to the date of the death of her husband in 2014. If the VA has denied your VA benefits claim, you are entitled to an attorney to assist you. Attorney Colonel (Retired) Rick Rousseau is accredited by the VA to provide representation services to claimants before the VA. Call 254-699-9999; 409-515-6176; email: [email protected]
