The Jacob Brown Story
Jacob enlisted in the Army in 2006, he was deployed to Iraq from 2007-2008, and honorably discharged by December 2010. During deployment Jacob was in a guard tower where their burn pit was no more than 40 feet away from FOB Hammer. Since his return he suffers from ailments including double vision, gait impairment, speech dysarthria, breathing problems, enlarged liver, migraines, and shrinking of the cerebellum.
Jacob has only been deemed a 70% disability rating by the VA, although he has not been able to care for himself or his family for over 4 years.
Jacob's story is just one of hundreds of thousand of veterans suffering from "Burn Pit Exposure".
Americans Supporting Armed Services "Burn Pit Exposure Fund" has been created to raise awareness and be a voice to the ongoing struggles and loss of lives due to war time service. 100% of monies donated will be allocated to service members and their families directly affected by burn pit exposure.
