"As a veteran, you always want to apply for anything that you feel could be a possible disability that you have. If you don't apply for it and you don't get it service-connected, it will end up coming back and biting you later on down the road. If you don't address the wear and tear on your body, it's just going to get worse and worse."
Believe me I know. Don't wait 5, 10, 20, or 30 years down the road. You need to get your claims in now to get support for any ailments or injuries you sustained while you served. You have served our country your need your benefits to improve your health.

There is nothing worse than losing a friend because they didn’t think they had anyone to talk to, so....my phone is always on, my door is always open and a drink can easily be poured. Doing a real friend check. Support each other. I need eight people posting the message not sharing it, to show you’re always there when someone needs to talk. I have an idea of who will say done.

WHO ARE MY 10

Good morning 808th Engineers,
Here is a good read on those of us that were down wind of the Khamisiyah Pit Demolition during March 10-31, 1991. Please note that the 808th Engineers were under the 864th Engineer Battalion during this time.

Distinct Units Exposed March 10-13, 1991
Khamisiyah Pit Demolition

PLEASE do not think this is an all inclusive list. It took the DOD several months to add units from the National Guard and Reserve units that were also in the area.
Also, some veterans who were in the area of Khamisiyah when the DOD was first forced to admit to the exposures STILL have not yet received a letter from the DOD telling them they may have been exposed.
If your unit is not listed (as mine is not, yet units near us are listed) send a note to the DOD Gulf War Illness investigative team and let them know.
[email protected]
Maybe someday the list will be complete enough to help other soldiers.
Note: I listed The Units the best I could!
As some MAY NOT be with Their Parent Unit, due to The "jumbled" List that I got!
Thanks to Sandflea for this!!!
