Just found out that military babies born with birth defects may be linked to anthrax and gases/ is this true?

No. Children born to us servicemembers do have birth defects, but not more often than any other group: 3/100 births. These questions about parents' exposure to chemicals, infections, or stress during war - from vietnam to the present - have been studied within the us military and by outside agencies and contractors. Some anecdotes seem alarming, but no unusual scientific findings have been reported.
