Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry

The Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry is an online database of health information from Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation New Dawn (OEF/OIF/OND) or 1990-1991 Gulf War Veterans and Service members collected through a questionnaire about exposures to airborne hazards. The Registry will help you become more aware of your own potential health issues and help VA better understand the potential health effects of deployment-related exposures.

By enrolling in the Registry, you can create a snapshot from which to identify changes in your health, print your completed questionnaire, use it to discuss concerns with your provider and learn about follow-up care.

Some Veterans and Service members may experience difficulties receiving accurate deployment information within the registry if they deployed during the following timeframes:

  • After 1991, but before September 11, 2001

  • If you have recently returned from deployment within the last 60 days

    If you are a Veteran or Service member experiencing difficulties receiving the correct deployment information and have deployed during the outlined deployment periods stated above, we ask for your patience while we continue to address technical approaches to solving any challenges.

  • Review a participant’s completed questionnaire with information about his or her exposures to airborne hazards (such as smoke from burn pits, oil-well fires, or pollution during deployment), as well as other exposures and health concerns

  • Print or download a participant’s completed questionnaire

    For more information and/or inquiries contact your Veterans Service Representative at Post 10.
