Episode 24: Burn Pits
Military burn pits are large areas of land in which the military and its contractors incinerated all waste generated by military bases, including plastics, medical waste, rubber, human waste, etc. The U.S. military used burn pits as part of their waste disposal protocol in places such as Iraq and Afghanistan in the post-9/11 era during Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. Many U.S. military veterans have suffered health consequences from burn pit exposure. On this episode of the Veterans Legal Lowdown, CCK discusses pathways to VA disability benefits for conditions caused by burn pit exposure, the Burn Pit Registry, and more.
