The New York Times Reporter John Ismay spoke with NVLSP Co-Founder and Special Counsel Bart Stichman about burn pits and the devastating effects they can have on troops. Mr. Ismay also spoke with Lee Cosens, a veteran who detailed his burn pit exposure. Mr. Cosens was diagnosed with kidney cancer and he was initially denied assistance through the VA. He was eventually approved once he sought assistance through NVLSP's Burn Pits Claims Assistance Program.
