Weakened lungs. Chronic cough. Yearly pneumonia. Illnesses undetermined.Submitted 2011-12-19
Defendant: Burn Pits (chronic health problems in US military)
I get pneumonia every year at about the same time and i have a chronic year round cough. I didn't know why until I read an article about burn pits in Iraq. I was deployed to OIF I in 2003. Lived on multiple bases in Kuwait and Iraq, including Balad air base aka LSA Anaconda for most of the deployment. We lived for a few months within 50 feet of a burn pit until it was mandated we take our trash to a centralized burn pit for the entire base. I have gone in to debt each of the past two years because I have had to miss extended periods of employment because of my yearly illness.
