I lived in H-6 during my time at Balad in 2009.  I worked on the flightline, which was even closer to the burn pit.  Our entire work area would be covered in soot and ash.  I now have IBS, and bleeding intestines, as well as polyps and glowths in my colon.  Two of the guys that I was at Balad with have died of intestinal cancers, and I'm terrified.
