The Veterans Administration has expanded eligibility for health care and benefits for Veterans who may have been exposed to hazardous materials — including burn pits, radiation, Agent Orange, and other Gulf War toxins — during their military service. The Sergeant First Class (SFC) Heath Robinson Honoring our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act adds more than 20 new presumptive conditions, including respiratory cancers, for Veterans exposed to burn pits or other toxins. If you’re a Veteran or survivor, you can file claims now to apply for PACT Act-related benefits.
