Doctor to release findings on toxic dust from Iraq – CBS News

 

There are new developments coming this week in a story CBS News has been reporting on since last spring. A mysterious lung illness is affecting veterans who were exposed to open burn pits, which the U.S. military used in Iraq and Afghanistan to torch everything from batteries to body parts.

This week, those veterans, including Army combat medic Will Thompson, may finally get some answers.

Thompson was often the life of the party while stationed in Iraq in 2004.

Today, at age 43, he’s an outpatient at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia. The recipient of a double lung transplant, he is struggling to stay alive.
