Must Read

President Joe Biden pushed for better coverage for veterans struggling from the consequences of toxic burn pit smoke exposure on Tuesday, calling it part of the country’s “holy mission” to care for those who served in the military. The commander-in-chief stated in a speech to veterans and Veterans Affairs officials in Fort Worth, Texas, that the catastrophic health repercussions of wartime chemical exposure had been either inadequately addressed or neglected for far too long. He noted that data on the health impacts of waste pit smoke is still inconclusive but that this should not be used as an excuse to do nothing. Biden addressed the subject of hazardous wartime exposure in his State of the Union speech last week, devoting several minutes of the hour-long national address to veterans’ treatment.
