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".
We had the honor of meeting Staff Sergeant Wesley Black
in September 2021. He was the first Iraq/Afghanistan veteran
to fly with North Country Honor Flight, Plattsburgh,NY.
Wesley passed away in November 2021 after battling cancer
and the Federal government. Wesley served in both Iraq and Afghanistan being exposed to open air Burn Pits
which caused his illness.
Americans Supporting Armed Services will continue
to advocate for his fight to bring awareness to the
veterans and their hardships post war due to BPE.
