Certain veterans can now sign up for disability from burn pit exposure

The Veterans Benefits Administration is about to start paying disability benefits for those exposed to fumes from burn pits in the Middle East as far back as the Gulf War. Payments will go to those with asthma, rhinitis or sinusitis. The new benefit comes after years of complaints and lobbying Congress. For what it means to VBA, the Federal Drive spoke with the Executive Director of Compensation Service, Beth Murphy.
