GOV'T DENIAL ON RAD/EXPOSED TROOPS
IP: 72.222.137.3


In a photograph provided by Tim Snider, a military film crew dressed him in a protective suit and respirator on the day he arrived on Enewetak Atoll in 1979. During the four months he cleaned up fallout from nuclear tests there, he wore only shorts and a sun hat.
Troops Who Cleaned Up Radioactive Islands Can't Get Medical Care
By DAVE PHILIPPS

Roughly 4,000 service members helped clean up the Enewetak Atoll from nuclear tests. Many now have ailments they think result from the work, but the government won't provide health care.

NOTE:
I may have attended nuclear related schools with some of these joint-service troops...primarily US Army
that also dealt with the open-air atomic testing in the US desert southwest. There were even well-known
Hollywood characters caught up in Rad fallout during those tests... JW
