I was given this info on one of our Marine Family pages today. Not sure if it news to folks here but thought I would pass it on.

- The registry is a database of information about Veterans and Servicemembers collected through a questionnaire.
- OEF/OIF/OND or 1990-1991 Gulf War Veterans and Servicemembers can use the registry questionnaire to report exposures to airborne hazards (such as smoke from burn pits, oil-well fires, or pollution during deployment), as well as other exposures and health concerns.
More than 18 months in the making, the registry is open to active duty and former troops to report exposures to airborne hazards such as burn pits, oil well fires and other forms of pollution and document their health problems.
