Help for Veterans With Burn Pit Exposure
Some people have referred to burn pit smoke toxins as “the new Agent Orange.” There are many risks to a person’s health when being exposed to these smoke toxins. Hi, I’m Mike Woods, a Veterans Disability lawyer at Woods & Woods – The Veterans Firm. Burn pits have operated widely at military sites in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Veterans who were exposed to burn pit smoke or worked close to them may be at greater risk for damage to their health.
