William Bonk - Exposure: Surviving Historical Ft McClellan - Bill Bonk is a veteran, but that's only part of the story. He's also been an investigator. His latest case is understanding the exposure of veterans at Ft McClellan. Hundreds of thousands of service members and support folks work on the camp. In part because the chemical corps is trained there, think combating mustard gas, there's constant exposure.

Joining Pete A Turner is Terrane Long another expert, and veteran, who also focuses on munitions and exposing the ocean to harmful chemicals and heavy metals. One shocking moment...Bill reveals that Ft McClellan has LOST weapons ranges...meaning all varieties of harmful poisonous materials are no long accounted for in the ground on the post!
A note from Bill, “I want to attract the attention of the 535 members of the U.S. Congress,” said Bonk, also a retired supervisory criminal investigator and former U.S. Army military police trainee who trained at FMC. I want them to be able to have a reason to move forward with a FMC health registry and work toward a presumption within the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs that FMC veterans were adversely affected by exposure to dangerous contaminants.”The sad reality according to Bonk is that, “because of latency, dosage, time, and risk factors, FMC veterans have to fight individually to attempt to prove an in- service event and the service connection with a nexus between the two. In most cases, they were unknowingly exposed to a plethora of contaminants, making any argument difficult to prove.”
Today's intro is provided by Jeremy McKane who's also focused on the environment, primarily the ocean. Get more on his work at OCN.ai to learn about blockchain, creating value for a healthy ocean and more.
