Justice for Toxic Exposure Ft McClellan Veterans

      Carrollton, TX

Many U.S. Army Veterans were exposed to toxic PCB'S and other toxins while serving active duty at Ft McClellan Alabama; The Ft McClellan Health Registry Act HR 2052  is currently pending review before the House Committee on Veterans Affairs. (It has not passed into law yet.) It will create a list of those exposed forcing the VA to keep a listing, studying and comparing disorders and illnesses, and to contact and assist these veterans with their serious health problems, and service connected disability claims. Currently the Veterans Administration and Dept of Defense has not actively sought to notify veterans who were stationed there. Many veterans state their claims go into appeals, and into years of waiting with no hope of outcome for the veterans sickened and affected. Many are gone and more are losing this battle.  In some cases it also affects the children they have born. The CBS program 60 Minutes once called Fort Mac the most toxic place on the planet. It reportedly is the only chem/bio facility in the Army where live substances were manufactured, stored, and used in training. The McClellan cocktail includes PCB'S, depleted uranium, sarin gas, mustard gas, and various other bacterial, nerve and chemical agents. This Bill would assist veterans in no cost medical care, and service connected claims, which they desperatley need.  Please help us by signing this very important registry act.  Thank you.

      For all who shared this petition, and signed, from Ft McClellan Veterans to Americans across the country. We all thank you and we know you are sharing with others. I was hoping to be at 500 by now. So please help us some more. I know we all know people who will be sympathetic to this issue. So toss the idea around in your head and try to remember, family, friends or even friends of friends. As long as they are living and breathing we can get their signature of support. But seriously, thanks all you folks who are signing for our veterans. We served, and thought we might go to war, or into some hostile circumstances, its what we signed up for. But we did not know we would be poisoned. Some of us along with our families and children. We appreciate you all. Thank you folks.

    4. 277 Supporters and Signatures.

      Can you believe it? Seven weeks ago when we started, we had no signatures. And now we have 277. I think that is exciting. Thank you all so much, and please continue to share, and talk about the plight of Ft McClellan veterans of toxic exposure. There is a saying going around in the ranks of veterans, and it says this, "We died in a war, and didn't even know it" LIves have been shortened, families broken apart from early death. And affected spouses, children and babies. Do not let the Govenrment get away with waiting for vets and families do die off before they make some medical care available to them, and get the presumed service connected disability they need. If you know someone affected, they can get information and support from others at the link below. A private group for affected veterans. Thank you all for your support.

      We are moving on up so to speak. 217 signatures and supporters for our veterans. Susan Burke, an attorney fighting for Toxic Burn Pits that have harmed soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan says this , “This is a case where you have hundreds of men and women who volunteered to serve this nation. They knew they were assuming the risk that a major or a captain might send them into danger and they may be hurt as the result of a military decision. What they did not sign onto and what it is not fair to place on them is the risk that a company would ignore their health and safety … these are serious issues that cannot be brushed aside,” Burke said. I say, In the case of Ft Mac, it is hundreds of thousands. From our hearts we say , THANK YOU!

      We are very pleased with support for Ft McClellan veterans of toxic exposure. But we are far below the 1000 signatures needed to make an impact. We are asking again if you would share this petition with your friends and relatives. Many veterans are sick. Many are losing the battle, and running out of time. The government does not want to take responsibility for these soldiers and their families. Don't let them win. Help us today. We desperately need it. Thank you all for your thoughts and signatures.

      So many thanks are going out to those who care about all Veterans. The Ft McClellan veterans effected by toxic poisoning are fighting everyday to survive, and many are losing the battle. Your signature means someone cares. And knows. When we all get together and support each other, we become stronger. So I invite you, and plead with you to share this petition with others. Because knowledge is power. And no government can stand against the tide of the American people when they feel a injustice has been done to those who stepped up to the plate for all who have served our country. We want to challenge our supporters to help us get 1000 signatures in a month. Please keep us in your thoughts. Talk and share with others. You are appreciated.
