The military scandal that no one is taking about: How trash pits are hurting our soldiers.
Our veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan have fasted many perils in battle while on tour. But one of most dangerous things they had to face was in their own encampments: toxic burn pits. Caused by burning trash and disgarded supplies, many of the items burned gave off noxious fumes. Prolonged exposure to these pit fumes has cause many illnesses and injuries to our servicemen, many of them needing care for the rest of their lives. This page was created to draw awareness and act as a resource for servicemen to seek help if they’ve been affected by burn pits.
