A group fighting against toxic exposure.

Task & Purpose Avatar
Senior Airman Frances Gavalis, 332nd Expeditionary Logistics Readiness Squadron equipment manager, tosses unserviceable uniform items into a burn pit, March 10. Military uniform items turned in must be burned to ensure they cannot be used by opposing forces. Airman Gavalis is deployed from Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M.

The two decades of conflict has changed the composition of the population seeking medical care within VA facilities and civilian practices. Deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, Syria and Africa have young men and women returning home, with multi-factorial exposures and a wide array of symptoms.

Service members do not deploy unhealthy, but they return with progressive illnesses and worsening symptoms.

As the conflicts in these countries continues, so does the increasingly, alarming rates of cancers, rare illnesses and idiopathic symptoms in our fellow veterans returning home. 

As a team consisting of military veterans and medical professionals, the members of the HunterSeven Foundation have been given a ‘second chance’, they made it home alive. They are committed to giving back to those who served before them, after them and side-by-side, by conducting medical research and offering solutions for a better quality of life.
