I’m sure that most, if not all, Gulf War and OIF/OEF Veterans are aware of the issues surrounding burn pits. If you aren’t familiar, some good information can be found through the following resources:

​VA Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry Information for Health Care Providers and Veterans

VA Public Health: Burn Pits

Why is this being posted here? Well, it is good information to have and our entire board of directors and the vast majority of our volunteer staff are Veterans so this hits close to home. The health issues that this exposure may cause can change a person’s life, cause a severe impact on their family and have a potentially devastating effect on their financial situation.

Angel’s Wings was created to help those in need and by sharing this type of information we feel that a Veteran may have the knowledge necessary to seek a diagnosis sooner rather than later and possibly receive treatment before too much damage is done.
