When he was a child in Wakefield, Kan., Lowell Gunselman's father often told him, "Live an adventurous life and you'll never have to tell a lie because you'll always have the truth to talk about."

In his 77 years, Gunselman has done his best to live by those words.

It's no small irony then that he’s spent the past two years trying to set the record straight about his experiences in the in the U.S. Navy. "We were just guinea pigs," Gunselman said. "didn't find that out until a year ago last September that it was classified as a human radiation experiment. I cried, I was so angry. When you take into consideration all the things that happened in Nevada and New Mexico, and all those guys are dead - from the early testing that was done on land - it really is a sad scenario.'
