Toxic Exposure and Veterans’ Benefits
The threats facing U.S. service members aren’t always as obvious as bullets and bombs. Sometimes, it is what can’t be seen that’s most dangerous.
From asbestos and contaminated drinking water to radiation and mustard gas, veterans may have been exposed to an array of chemical, physical and environmental hazards during their military service.
It may take years for the effects of these hazards to manifest. When they do, a veteran’s health and overall well-being can suffer immensely.
