CHEMICAL EXPOSURE: ONE VETERAN'S STORY posted by Robert O'Dowd Veterans Today October 26, 2010Chemical exposure can make you very sick and even kill you. Steven is an Air Force veteran, 1978-1982, whose hands shake and is sick with pancreatic disease. In the Air Force, Steven worked with fuels and trichloroethylene (TCE), a known carcinogen
....Steven's story is worth retelling. You won't find anything like it on any recruiting flyers:
"I was a Fuels Specialist AFSC (USAF) Grand Forks North Dakota and Ramstein Air Base, Germany. My 2nd AFSC was Repro-Graphics Specialist at Ramstein.
"I am angry because with pancreatic disease I could die at any time. I have had so much time in the hospital, I am very worried I can get sick at any time and never come home. My family will never have my benefits.
"Please just use my first name Steven. My rank was E-4 Sergeant (U.S. Air Force). I served on active duty from 1978 to 1982."
