Burn Pit


    If you are a Veteran or Servicemember who served in the Southwest Asia theater of operations after August 2, 1990, or in Djibouti, Africa or Afghanistan after September 11, 2001, you are eligible to participate in the Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry.

    The Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry is an online database of health information from Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation New Dawn (OEF/OIF/OND) or 1990-1991 Gulf War Veterans and Servicemembers collected through a questionnaire about exposures to airborne hazards. The Registry will help you become more aware of your own potential health issues and help VA better understand the potential health effects of deployment-related exposures.

    By enrolling in the Registry, you can create a snapshot from which to identify changes in your health, print your completed questionnaire, use it to discuss concerns with your provider and learn about follow-up care.

    Some Veterans and Servicemembers may experience difficulties receiving accurate deployment information within the registry if they deployed during the following timeframes:

    • After 1991, but before September 11, 2001
    • If you have recently returned from deployment within the last 60 days

    If you are a Veteran or Servicemember experiencing difficulties receiving the correct deployment information and have deployed during the outlined deployment periods stated above, we ask for your patience while we continue to address technical approaches to solving any challenges.
