Korean vet with prostate cancer


My husband died one year ago of an aggressive prostate cancer. He was station at Camp Red Cloud South Korea. My claim for befits were denied,, one of the reasons the V.A denied the claim was he showed no symptoms 1 year after leaving the army. How do I address this?  He was 75 when he passed .

There are strict limits on presumption of prostate cancer for Korean veterans. If he wasn't in the right place during the time that VA allows, he won't be approved. More information is here.See https://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/agentorange/locations/korea.asp
