    A veteran who, during active military, naval, or air service,
    served between April 1, 1968, and August 31, 1971, in a unit that, as
    determined by the Department of Defense, operated in or near the Korean
    DMZ in an area in which herbicides are known to have been applied
    during that period, shall be presumed to have been exposed during such
    service to an herbicide agent, unless there is affirmative evidence to
    establish that the veteran was not exposed to any such agent during
    that service. See also 38 CFR 3.814(c)

    (2).Regulations.gov Monetary allowance under 38 U.S.C. 1821 for an individual
    suffering from spina bifida who is a child of a veteran with covered
    service in Korea. Except as provided in Sec. 3.814(e), an award of the
    monetary allowance under 38 U.S.C. 1821 based on the existence of an
    individual suffering from spina bifida who is a child of a veteran with
    covered service in Korea will be effective from either the date of
    birth if claim is received within 1 year of that date, or the later of
    the date of claim or date entitlement arose, but not earlier than
    December 16, 2003.
