As a veteran of Operation Restore, we too disposed of our solid and liquid waste by igniting the stuff with diesel fuel in a pit. I remember we all took turns burning our waste. I remember having breathing problems and I was always tired! That was a long time ago and to this date I am fatigued ALL the time, I don't sleep well at all, and for someone that's fairly fit, I catch myself breathing hard for no apparent reason. I would love to know if any other servicemembers from Operation Restore Hope suffer any possible burn pit related health symptoms?
