Burn Pits 360 maintains its own burn pit registry on their website, completely separate from the official Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pits Registry maintained by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The main difference between the two registries is that Burn Pits 360 offers a way for family members to update the system to track diagnosed with cancer or in the event of their veteran’s death. Nearly 8,000 veterans have signed up for the Burn Pits 360 registry. Exposed veterans still need to sign up for the VA registry, however.
The memorial event will begin at 4 p.m. at Thalia Street Beach in Laguna.. larger image
