Burn Pit Registry


Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry

VA's Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry allows eligible Veterans and Service Members to document their exposures and report health concerns through an on-line questionnaire.  Eligible Veterans and Service Members include those who served in:

    -  Operation Enduring Freedom / Operation iraqi Freedom / Operation New Dawn
    -  Dijbouti, Africa on or after September 11, 2011
    -  Operation Desert Shield or Operation Desert Storm
    -  Southwest Asia theater of operations on or after August 2, 1990

Three things you should know about the Burn Pit   Registry:

                     Registry participants can get a free medical evaluation to discuss their concerns and 
                     completed questionnaire with a knowledgeable VA provider. Call a local 
                     Environmental Health Coordinator today to schedule your evaluation. 

                    Joining the registry is faster than ever.  VA has updated the eligibility verification 
                    process—greatly shortening or eliminating previous delays resulting from manual
                    eligibility checks.

                   The registry is not just for Post-9/11 Veterans. Many Veterans who deployed after 1990
                    qualify.
