    Those of us with Asthma really hate when they do these burns. Guess I'll be getting the nebulizer back out for me and my kids.

    The Army would do better to cut the plains grass as burning will stimulate grow. Mowing will reduce the burn material. The Army must accept the wild fire facts, and the damage that might occur from such a burn.
