Landmark Bill would designate 12 illnesses as connected to burn pits | Military.com

A bill being pushed by some of the same law makers that got 9/11 relief money would help veterans that have been affected by burn pits. The VA would have to expedite care to those effected. The bill also would link 12 illnesses to burn pits. This could affect 3 million soldiers. Lung cancers, asthma and lymphoma are just some of the illnesses linked to burn pits and their toxic exposure. If passed, this bill could help thousands of veterans who have been fighting to receive proper care after being exposed.
