John West - Atomic Veteran - Agent Orange Veteran - Johnston Island

5RZu4rVsQj75ggmyPdAG John was an Air Force officer stationed on Johnston Island in from 1973-1975. He tells about how agent orange stored on the island leaked into the sand and Ocean at a rate of over 25 barrels a week. Over time, the agent orange saturated the sand, but more importantly contaminated the water around the island. There were no wells on Johnston Island and all drinking water came from the ocean, which was run thru de-salination machines similar to what the Navy uses on boats. The removes the salt from the water, but does not remove the chemical contaminates. In fact, it might actually condense them. in 1979 the USAF did a study on the island and found elevated levels of Dioxin, which is a compound in agent orange. It was found both in the soil and in the drinking water. For years, our troops drank this water, washed clothes, dishes, and took showers in it. This could be one possible explanation for high rates of cancer found in our troops who served on Johnston Island...

Johnston Island Veteran - Ron Parson

Ron Parsons spent a few years on Johnston Island. If you recall previous episodes, J.I. is one of the most conatminated places on earth. The US military launched nuclear missiles from the island in atmospheric tests such as project fishbowl and starfish prime. Three of these missiles failed and contaminated the island with weapons grade plutonium. If that wasn't bad enough, the military stored ALL the agent orange created during the Vietnam war on a beach on JI. These often leaked and soaked into the sand. Thousands of veterans have served on the island, and many have come down with cancer. The VA refuses to recognize any connection between service on the island and cancer diagnosis. Please help spread the message of this issue by sharing this show.

Frank F. - Johnston Island Veteran

If you recall I did an episode on Johnston Island a while back. Its a small Island in the Pacific where the U.S. Military tested nuclear missiles in the 50s-70s. Several of these missiles exploded leaving the island contaminated with plutonium. If that were not bad enough, millions of gallons of agent orange were stored on the island before it was all incinerated. My guest today served on Johnston Island and tells us how the island itself is dangerous due to the failed handling of dangerous materials, and how many veterans are coming down with cancer after serving on Johnston Island. The government is currently not recognizing the issues and denying any link between service on Johnston Island and cancer diagnosis among veterans. We hope to change that, and you can help by spreading the word. Be sure to visit the website at www.veteransmentorship.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/veteransadvocate/support

After Action Report - Ryan Matthews

Ryan had some great advice to give us in regards to takin on big challenges. He said if a dog is physically capable of doing it, he can train the dog to do it. That applies well to us also. If you are physically capable of something you can train yourself to do it. Break down the large goal into many small goals. Take the first steps towards that goal and build on your success. Then set slightly larger goals and keep going! With time and dedication you can achieve great things. www.veteransmentorship.com @theveteransadvocate Facebook and Instagram --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/veteransadvocate/support
