If you’re a veteran suffering from short-term memory problems, chronic fatigue, headaches, confusion, loss of appetite, painful joints, ringing in your ears, and a host of other physical and psychological conditions, your problems may be associated with you being exposed to dangerous chemicals. Not just herbicides in Vietnam or burn pits in the Middle East, or vaccines given to you prior to being shipped overseas, it could be the result of having been stationed or lived in an area near a military installation contaminated with dangerous chemicals.
Sure, many of the military installations look beautiful. Most are supremely manicured, many offer state-of-the-art facilities, and most military installations are safe havens.
However, quite of few of our beloved military installations are dripping with dangerous hidden chemicals. Some of these insidious chemicals have worked their way into the water supply systems on many military installations. The water you consumed for drinking, bathing and recreation, may have been polluted with chemicals that you couldn’t see, taste, or smell. But, nonetheless, presented an imminent danger to you, your family and military colleagues.
Listed below are the military installations where many dangerous chemicals contaminated the water supply system on or near a military installation, exposing you and your family to great harm.
Note: Not every base suffering such contamination is on the list, because information was not available for all bases. The list is based on the latest status report for DoD's Installation Restoration Program.
