“Open-air burn pits were a common way to get rid of waste at military sites in Iraq and Afghanistan. Waste burned included human and medical waste, chemicals, fuel, paint, unexploded ordnance, petroleum and lubricants, plastics, etc.”

“Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) is the largest post-9/11 veterans organization and a huge 82% of our members report they were exposed during deployments and 9 in 10 report they may have associated health symptoms.”

“The House-passed Honoring Our PACT Act (H.R. 3967) is comprehensive legislation, a culmination of years of work by national veterans groups, to finally establish that if a veteran has suffered an injury from toxic exposures like from burn pits during their deployments, they will be granted disability and healthcare benefits by the VA.”

“The Senate Majority Leader has promised a floor vote for the House-passed PACT Act. We need YOUR help in getting this critical legislation passed into law. The time is NOW to contact your Senators and urge them to support passing this critical legislation ASAP!”
