About Burn Pits 360
Burn Pits 360 is the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to offer an independent burn pit exposure registry in which family members can record the names of warriors who served the nation but have passed away due to illnesses from toxic injury. We are entirely dedicated to improving post-deployment health outcomes for current and former military personnel.
Advocacy isn't just creating change but instead canvassing a community of veterans and families affected to build a culture of justice through meetings, education and workshops. Burn 360 and the Military Children's Six Foundation is to equip our military families with the tools to be their own voice and when they need additional assistance to step in and come alongside them.
Cindy Aman - Spc. U.S. Army
When I was told I had a progressive, untreatable lung disease due to toxic espouser form my deployment during Operation Enduring Freedom; I went from being a physically fit person to having to give up my career as a police officer. Instead of giving up, I started listening to and reading about the thousands of other veterans who are suffering. There is no reason to wait decades to provide the care and treatment needed. These people who put their lives on the line to fight for our country held up their end of their promise no questions asked.
David McCracken - Colonel U.S. Army
As a U.S. Army Reservist, my husband deployed several times after 9/11. On October 2, 2010, we ran a half marathon at Disney World. Seven days later, our world drastically changed. A biopsy confirmed that David had Glioblastoma Multiform (GBM), a statistical anomaly considering he was 45, in outstanding physical shape with no hereditary conditions. He died 11 months later. David's last words to me were: "Did I do a good job?"" I told him yes and kissed him goodbye. Tammy McCracken - Wife of the late David McCracken, U.S. Army.
Veterans exposed to burn pit plumes experienced exposure to many highly toxic chemicals that have specific associated health risks that are known and there are also predictable health risks arising from the synergistic impact of simultaneous exposure to multiple toxic chemicals emitting from burning refuse.
Burn Pits 360 continues to work with health and legal experts on research efforts that will help in concluding the evidence to link troops illnesses and deaths to exposure to burn pits.
