This is old news. We had depleted uranium rounds for a number of ordnance delivery systems way back in the late 1960s. I'm sure Ft. Campbell, home of the Armor Corps, has seen tons of the stuff come and go, and I'm sure they have used it for target practice around Ft. Campbell, which is in Kentucky. DU is the primary means of defeating other armored vehicles, due to its high heat intensity which can burn through anything.
I've never seen a detailed breakdown on the health costs for this stuff, but it cannot be healthy to be around. Of most concern is the way it vaporizes when used in a tank-busting, bunker-busting or similar role. The radioactive dust then just blows where ever the wind takes it. Just how damaging it is I do not know.
