  1. First of all mikehuntrep07... thank you for your service to our country an further concern for your troops & health/protection of people in Iraq/Afghanistan.

    This "was" a priority for awhile along with massive amounts of contamination to troops/citizens from depleted munitions.

    I will look for more information on current polices & programs the U.S. is working on to continue efforts to protect troops and the Iraq/Afghanistan people.

    Thanks again and may your deployment be swift and successful.
