This important documentary tells the story of American soldiers who returned from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan with severe illnesses from chemical war. They are not the victims of ruthless enemy warfare, but of decisions made by their own military commanders.
These soldiers, afflicted with everything from respiratory diseases to rare cancers, were sickened by the smoke and ash swirling out of the “burn pits”, where both the military and private contractors incinerated mountains of trash. According to soldiers who served there, every type of waste was disposed of and burned, including batteries, appliances, vehicles, plastics, dead animals … even human body parts. Today, up to 100,000 soldiers are sick and dying.
This documentary is being distributed on a crowdfunding basis and 110 tickets must still be sold in order to confirm the screening. Please purchase your ticket today at: www.tugg.com/titles/burnpits
