Agent orange link to blood platelet disorder(Possible).

I'm still looking for some kind of "clinical rationale" to back up my VA claim that due to Agent Orange exposure during my "stay" in Danang Viet-Nam(US Air Force 1970/1971),there could be a link to my incurable blood disorder.I have acquired Essential Thrombocytosis.I was told by an hemotologist/oncologist, it(ET) is very rare,BUT,I have also read that many other Viet Vets have come down with the same(or a variation) of the same disease.It is NOT curable but is manageable.........Can ANYONE help me (and others) with some kind of information concerning this?............The dioxin in agent orange could be the culprit.Too long and hard to say ,but the acronym is tcdd..........It's a bone marrow malfunction,that I have,BUT Essential Thrombocytosis is not on the VA's presumptive list.Some types of Leukemia are and THEY stem from bone marrow malfunctions!..............HELP......... and thanks.
