What is the Government hiding … Ft. McClellan?

When a young person signs the documents that say they are willing to serve in the United States Military, they are expecting some things. Good training, safe housing, and the ability to protect this country … right? So, what is the Federal Government hiding from them?

As a United States Army Veteran – we all need to know.

The base that I went to for basic training is Ft. McClellan Alabama. Here are some basic facts on it. First off – all the information is easy to find on the internet and none is classified!!!

Ft. McClellan was opened in 1917. It was closed in 1999.

The military schools that were at Ft. McClellan were the Military Police Corps, and the Chemical Corps, (N.B.C. Corps)
.

Now you may be wondering why I am writing about this. I went to basic there and it was a good time for me to learn about myself. However, there is another issue with it.

According to the VA’s website (https://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/fort-mcclellan/) I found out that while I was there I unknowingly was exposed to some rather deadly and hazardous stuff. According to the site there was Potential exposures could have included, but are not limited to, the following: Radioactive compounds (cesium-137 and cobalt-60) used in decontamination training activities in isolated locations on base, Chemical warfare agents (mustard gas and nerve agents) used in decontamination testing activities in isolated locations on base, and Airborne polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from the Monsanto plant in the neighboring town.

Now on the site it says that we can possibly get additional benefits and specialized healthcare for health problems with this when I called – the person had no idea of what I was talking about. I had to give them the site address and they had to put me on hold to find out what to do regarding my request for a form for benefits on this.

These are the actual screen shots from their site.




I am wondering why we were only told about it in 2011 when President Obama was in office and that we were put on a registry but the VA doesn’t know who should be getting additional treatments for some of these.

Now people are going to say that this was too long ago to be something to worry about, but there are people like me who suffer from health issues that we never had before going into the service and some have suffered like me for ages with some of these problems. Now I get to have fun trying to get additional help with this.

  13. I believe what you said was actually very logical. But, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your content isn’t solid, however suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean BLOG_TITLE is a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.|
