I am at the beginning of a new project. It's website and blog went live just recently. I encourage you to check it out.... The short story is that, many thousands of U.S. Army veterans are experiencing debilitating to life threatening illnesses and connect their health problems to very high levels of radiological, biological and chemical toxicity that they were exposed to at an Army installation in northeastern Alabama - Fort McClellan. It just so happens that I'm one of them. Here's my story. At this time, the VA acknowledges the presence of the toxins, but not the effect they had on the veterans. I'll be documenting their stories for the foreseeable future and posting them at https://fmvets.org/fmvets-stories/  I also encourage you to share this through social media channels - that's how I found out about the high levels of toxins registered at Fort McClellan and the thousands of other veterans who believe they have been affected. I'm looking for veterans to add to the collection of portraits and stories. One of your friends or acquaintances  - or even family members - may be a Fort McClellan veteran and you don't know it. Thank you for helping to spread the word with this link: https://fmvets.org/fmvets-stories/
