As Veterans Die, Does VA Burn Pit Registry Hold Out False Hope?
Air Force veteran Jennifer Kepner died from pancreatic cancer following exposure to burn pits during the Iraq War last week.
Kepner, a 39-year-old wife, and mother of two, lost her fight against pancreatic and was laid to rest on Sunday. She was exposed to toxins from burn pits during her tour at Balad AB. In those burn pits, the US Military burned anything from garbage to human remains using JP-8.
