Burn Pits 360 was developed in an effort to promote awareness of disease and illness of our Military, Veterans, and Contractors due to environmental toxic chemical exposures from burn pits in war zones.
To educate, empower and provide outreach regarding burn pit chemical exposure. In addition, provide resources to healthcare benefits, health care providers, legislative updates related to toxic exposures, information on VA benefits and fact sheets on toxic chemicals. All Gulf War campaigns have resulted in thousands of soldiers and contractors developing diseases and illnesses, many of these severe and some resulting in death, caused by inhalation of toxic fumes.
To maintain a National Registry that will allow the individuals affected to self report their data online. To identify the need for a longitudinal study, to prove a medical, scientific, and legal correlation between the toxic chemicals detected and the individuals exposed.
To Establish an alliance of veteran service organizations, health care providers, legislators, and government organizations to allow for the strategic development of a quality specialized health care model specific to toxic environmental exposures that will provide a lifetime continuum of care.
To Facilitate resources to thousands of Reservists, Service Members, Veterans, and their Families through outreach initiatives encompassed around linking the services requested on the registry to services available within their community.
