New Book Investigates Toxic Exposures Causing Disability in Veterans
The topic of chemical and toxin exposure among soldiers has been an issue for many war eras. From Agent Orange in Vietnam to burn pit fumes in Iraq, when soldiers are exposed to toxins on a regular basis they often develop service-connected health conditions. A Few Good Men, Too Many Chemicals is the result of a 3-year investigation into the toxic exposures many soldiers stationed at U.S. military bases have faced over the years.
The new book, published on Amazon’s Kindle eReader, was written by Tim King and Robert O’Dowd, writers for Salem-News.com, which has published over 100 news stories on the environmental hazards at 2 marine base camps. The Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) in California and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina were the main focus for identifying and studying the history of chemical exposures on military bases.
Both bases have been found to have had contaminated water, which was consumed by thousands of military service members and their families over several decades. Many of those exposed are unaware of the exposure until they develop an unexplained disabling condition and find that it’s linked to one of the contaminates found at these bases during their time of service.
Veterans who were stationed at either of these bases, or any other base where environmental hazards have been suspected, should consider that this exposure may be the cause of a disabling condition they now suffer from.
