Fort McClellan Health Registry Advocate Support
Many U.S. Army Veterans were exposed to PCBs and other toxins while serving active duty at Ft McClellan Alabama; The Health Registry Act HR 411 is being debated in Washington to contact and assist these veterans with their serious health problems and service connected disabilities. Currently the Veterans Administration has not actively sought to notify veterans who were stationed there. The CBS program 60 Minutes once called Anniston, AL 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 PCBs, ionizing radiation, 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.
