As the ATSDR continues to release studies and findings after extensive research, this study is yet another example of the breadth of constituencies exposed to decades of contamination. Enlisted Marines, spouses, children, civilians and more all have a vested interest in these studies and their results. Each study should not be viewed in isolation. When all studies are viewed in total, the picture becomes alarmingly clear.
Civilian Exposure is a fully tax-exempt, non-profit news and outreach organization. Our writing and research is made possible through reader support. We are dedicated to shedding light on the extent of military contamination, as well as the generational health impacts to all people exposed. Our work honors and serves our nation’s military veterans and civilian DOD personnel working aboard US military installations, along with their families and children, in need of critical information about exposures.
