 Supreme court delays final ruling on ‘Blue Water’ Vietnam veterans benefits:

            As reported by Leo Shane III for Military Times, the Supreme Court this week granted a 30-day extension to Department of Justice officials contemplating an appeal of a lower court ruling in January which extended  presumptive benefits to tens of thousands of Navy veterans who have claimed exposure to toxic chemical  defoliants during the Vietnam War.  But advocates say they are not concerned by the move, calling it a typical    legal maneuver and not a serious threat to getting benefits to the group of so-called “blue water” veterans.
