This is the September 25, 2019 hearing on "Toxic Exposure: Examining the VA's Presumptive Disability Decision-Making Process," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs. From the opening statement of Johnny Isakson: "This is a very important hearing issue that is bubbling up from time to time in our military, and it is an issue that is not covered greatly, because it is an issue of more modern warfare than some of the old stuff. I think it is important that we hear everything that is going on and what the Department of Veterans Affairs is doing, and what problems veterans who have been conflicted with, associated with toxic waste and toxic fire pits, have endured." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Patricia Hastings, Terry M. Rauch, David Butler, Shane L. Liermann, and Robert Miller.
