When Congressman Kurt Schrader went home to his district in Portland, Oregon to listen to constituents at a recent town hall meeting, he heard something new. It appears that veterans and civilians at other bases are starting to speak up about toxic exposure at other installations during their service. Schrader heard from several veterans who were concerned about exposure while stationed at Naval Air Facility Atsugi in Japan from 1985-2001.
The story of contamination at Camp Lejeune has started a domino effect and is spreading. As we started this mission, we knew that if so much exposure and negligence existed at one base, it was more than likely possible to exist at many others. Now we are starting to hear others speak up and tell their stories.
