Unfortunately, H.R 6238 died. I took basic at Ft McClellan. They really do need to do a study on everyone who served there. Seems quite a large amount of women who were stationed there, have developed cancers, autoimmune diseases, suffered miscarriages, etc.

Old soldiers never die.... we just fight new wars!

Proud to have served, U.S. Army WAC

I read that article yesterday as another search site sent it to me. It doesn't stop. We keep finding out all the toxic chemicals were either used or stored on so many bases, just as the 15,335 55 gallon drums of AO that was stored in Gulfport Ms in the early 1970's...high rates of Cancer in this town, as well as higher level of birth defects too. These were stored by a Seebee base there. It keeps seeping out of the ground with each hurricane that penetrates the area, The soil is very contaminated there. Interesting to read the 350 page report the govt did on this and other stateside areas.
