The forms mentioned here are from various sources. They are of interest to many Veterans and their survivors.

Dependency and Indemnity Compensation

See VA Form 21-534 below.

DD149

If you have an error or omission on your DD214 or other Army records, a request can be sent to the Army Review Board if you would like to get your Army records reviewed, updated or corrected.

Form DD149 "Correction of Military Records" provides instructions, and a mailing address on how/where to submit that request.

Diseases Associated with Agent Orange Exposure

This link to the US Dept of Veterans Affairs has information on presumptive diseases associated with exposure to Agent Orange.

Request Missing or Lost
Military Awards and Medals

Use this link to request missing or lost Military Awards and Medals. They only only authorize medals that appear on your DD214. If you would like to get your records reviewed, updated or corrected a request can be sent to the Army Review Board. Use the DD149 form shown above which provides instructions, and a mailing address on how/where to submit that request.

VA Form 21-534

Application for dependency and indemnity compensation, death pension and accrued benefits by a surviving spouse or child (including Death Compensation if applicable). You must include a death certificate which states the cause of death (i.e. cancer of bladder, liver, colon, prostate etc.). Even if it's not on the list of presumptive illnesses, fill it out anyhow and include any other medical paperwork that concerned the veteran before he or she died. If you are unsure (or unable) how to answer any particular question, fill out the form as best you can. Also include a copy of the DD-214.

While the forms tell you to mail the completed form to your nearest VA Regional Office, we have been advised that the best thing to do is get it to the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) rep in your state who will take this form and represent the case of each individual with the Veterans Administration reps. The VVA seems to have the best reps, compared to the other agencies.  Not to say a National Service Officer of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) or other Veterans organization wouldn't do as good a job. Unfortunately, mailing anything yourself to VA facility often results in it being lost or ignored.
