Abandoned by US Government, Irradiated Servicemembers Turn to Japan for Help

Operation Tomadachi

The United States quickly dispatched an entire aircraft carrier group, centered on the USS Ronald Reagan, some 25 ships, for what came to be known as Operation Tomadachi (Friend). The U.S. provided search and rescue, and medical aid. Thousands of American military personnel assisted Japanese people in desperate need.

But it did not take long before the problems started.

The Aftermath

Military personnel soon began showing signs of radiation poisoning, including symptoms rare in young men and women: rectal bleeding, thyroid problems, tumors, and gynecological bleeding. Within three years of the disaster, young sailors began coming down with leukemia, and testicular and brain cancers. Hundreds of US military personnel who responded to Fukushima reported health problems related to radiation.

In a final report to Congress, the Department of Defense claimed personnel were exposed to less radiation than a person would receive during an airplane flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo. The Defense Department stated due to the low levels of radiation “there is no need for a long-term medical surveillance program.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the DOD and VA did to these military personnel was reprehensible in the extreme; I have a very hard time believing that they didn't know, or, understanding the financial liability this would cost the DOD and VA, just didn't want to know, and denied the real dangers over financial claims.

The DOD and VA both have a moral, medical, and financial responsibility to take care of those Vets who have been hurt in this way, period, end of discussion!!
