Congress needs to move forward with VA assistance for Qarmat Ali vets

We have received reports of Hoosier vets either being denied or delayed care at the VA for the health problems they are facing as a result of their exposures at KBR’s Qarmat Ali project.  While ultimately it should be KBR and not the US taxpayers paying for the costs of caring for our soldiers, the men that need care now should get it without delay.

U.S. Rep. Baron Hill, D-Ind., in a letter March 4, 2010, to the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs has asked the VA to step up care for the men currently suffering from debilitating illnesses as a result of exposure to the carcinogenic chemical hexavalent chromium during their service in the Iraq war.  Doyle Raizner LLP welcomes this and other efforts, including those by Sen. Bayh, to ensure that these men’s current needs are not ignored.
