Burn Pit Registry - New Law Was Advocated by Ill Veterans

The recently enacted Federal Burn Pit Registry was fought for by a disabled veteran who sufers with a disabilitating condition following his military service in Iraq and Afghanistan. His efforts, as well as others, helped the passage of the new law that will track medical conditions of veterans who have been exposed to dust and fumes from burn pits.

"Our heroes' health may be seriously impacted from the use of burn pits in combat zones, and we owe it to those affected to collect all the information necessary to properly take care of them when they get home," Senator Mark Udall said.  "This registry will help create a database of those who have been exposed to burn pits and improve communication so that important health services can actually get to them.”
