Title: 70,000 US Service Personnel Exposed To Radiation: Operation Tomodachi 3/11

Attorney Paul C. Garner, representing U.S. service members who were in Japan after 3/11: I want these Tepco people to help our troops. I have pleaded with them, I have asked their lawyers, “Please help us, we have people who are dying, we have people who need medical care and the VA is not equipped to deal with them.”

One woman who was over there, stationed over there and left, she’s already had a bone marrow transplant at the NIH in Maryland […]

I’ve got a couple of clients who are in Florida, Jamie Lee [???] is bleeding incessantly. She never had a problem before, she’s a young woman. And her fiancé, he’s as weak as can be. And they’re worried. They’re worried; they don’t what’s going to happen to them.

    "…people who need medical care and the VA is not equipped to deal with them.”

    If these people are still in the military, they're getting care through the services. If they are out of the military, and their illness is related to their military service, the VA will take care of them.

    The VA has the same hospital facilities as any other hospital. What is the VA 'not equipped to deal with'? Are they refusing to treat these former service members? They did the same with Agent Orange, refusing to treat anyone until many years after the fact:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_Orange#Effects_on_U.S._veterans

    The specifics need to be determined, in order to respond appropriately. Of course, there is no question the .gov/military will do every thing in their power not to assume any responsibility for this 'nuclear' epidemic.

      I'm not sure where you are getting your info Time is Short about the VA or the in service medical care but my experience with both has been less then stellar. We, of course, were told that Agent Orange was safe as water. No one that I know of was treated for Agent Orange exposure during that war. The effects of Dixon can take 20-25 years to present themselves. 14 years ago I applied for help from the VA. After 2 years of hoop jumping and degridation I gave up. But my advocates didn't I guess and last summer, July 2010, out of the blue, I got a letter from the VA declaring I was 70% disabled. They made it retroactive from the previous year and sent me a check for 15 grand and a monthly payment of 12 hundred dollars till I'm dead. I was 65 years old when this happened and homeless. The compensation is for PTSD and possible exposure to harmful agents. It was a nightmare dealing with the VA. Some of the operations I was involved in were still classified for petes sake. It seems to me it is easier to think these institutions are doing what we would expect them to do rather then understand the plight of those that have given of themselves only to be cast aside and forgotten. There is a reason there are 60,000 homeless Viet Nam vets and another 100,000 more recent vets in the same straights. Not to mention the incredible rate that we are taking our own lives. I am no longer homeless but it is a very hollow feeling….

      IF the troops can prove their illness is "service" related..and they retire, then the VA may treat them. But it may not be immediate, and, yes, the VA is a hospital, but probably needs to find specialists to help with the case load–they do have a significant increase due to Iraq and Afganistan.

      However, its almost impossible to PROVE the illness is caused by radiation..except for thyroid cancer where a new test can tell if the cancer is has a radiation profile. And even if the thyroid tumor has a radiation profile, then the patient needs to prove its from exposure during military duty. Its not easy, especially as the US Navy and US Government don't recognize any radiation exposure to service members or citizens in Japan. Or dangers from low level exposures — EPA allows nuclear plants to vent Tritium and other nuclear products( based on rather slanted studies like Chernobyl). Kind of like BP…prove Corexit and our oil made you sick..

        Believe there is also a waiting list to get medical care..the paperwork has to be filed, illness needs to be one considered recognized as a valid service related disability, AND the veteran's cause of illness needs to be due to service "injury." Someone should check out the average length of time needed to process a vet into the program and obtain medical care. And I could be wrong..hope I am.

          Your not wrong jec, in fact the wait can be as long as a year, and then, of course, you have to get to the hospital. In my case it is a hundred mile drive one way to get there. Once you are in the system it is pretty good as long as you don't screw up one way or the other. It also has a lot to do with where you are. The Seattle hospital is pretty good but that is not the case throughout the country. It can be a crap shoot.

            @blackbeer, hope all goes well for you. VA can be good, its varies depending on the doctors they contract out for. Good doc..you do well..bad doc..you don't. Am also concerned with other health issues at VA hospitals, like the Legionaires Disease contamination in their hospital water supply they had for over a year and did not report or fix..until a person died whose family took them to court..

    A horrible gut feeling that has the hair standing up at the back of my neck…consider…that from the bit we have read, watched & heard so far from the Navy personal involved ..that they clearly did NOT know the dangers..
    ie.. while alarms going off during the video on board, the joking & carrying on…even the officer testing for radiation was not even masked or gloved…the mishandling of their clothes, the cleaning of the sub, the spraying of the aircraft carrier while personal & the reporter were breathing in the spray..

    the most recent report from the pilot, who took a 2 year *radiation course in 2 days…who continued to bring supplies to the survivors…

    I think these personal were exposed, becasue they didn't know the dangers…& who woulda thunk it that in just under 2 years they woulda have figured out that they were getting sick becasue of that exposure…

    Experienced personal would not have exposed themselves to that degree…not without all the proper protection ect. ect…& if experienced personal were all geared up & masked …imagine how long it would have taken the Japanese…to figure out the true dangers…it would have alerted them to how much radiation they were breathing in…as it was with navy & military showing up barley protected or not at all..would give a sense of security to the Japanese, jounalaists ect.

    If the TEPCO hierarchy appeared on TV in moon-suits saying everything is fine then everyone would want one.

    I think perhaps the attorney might be feeling a bit overwhelmed by the various sickness befalling his clients..and how quickly these illnesses are moving.

    Don't beg…
    It falls on the ears of cowards and psychopaths.
    Steel up for a court case like no other.
    They have and will 'lawyer up'.

    Be strong, be brave..fight the good fight.

    What's going to happen to them is they are going to die. Maybe sooner, maybe later, but it will certainly happen.

    "When 311 happened, MEXT concealed SPEEDI data to cause numbers of people to be exposed."

    EX-SKF also chose this subject ..for a story today.

    THIS.. this stalling of information..is historical in importance.
    Those involved should not be left out of litigation.
