The National Organization for Veterans Advocates (NOVA) recently posted a report from the Army Corp of Engineers. The report is about the toxicity levels around various bases to protect endangered species. Luckily, these facts apply equally to humans and disabled veterans suffering from conditions as a result of exposure.

The information is broken down by base, as well. Click on the icon on the right to enlarge the PDF in a new window.

  1. I was a 54C (Smoke and Flame Specialist) until they changed it into a 54B (Chemical Operations Specialist) at Fort McClellan, Al. I have lived in fog oil smoke for years; ate, slept, washed, ect.. I have been exposed to all the smoke pots the Army has 100,000 of them I would guess. I was a fog oil resupply sgt. for a while and basically was bathed in it for years. I have been in the CDTF at Fort McClellan 5 times (VX, HD agents) along with DS2, STB, and any other nasty stuff the Army had. I have been exposed to radiactive sources from all the Chem/ Bio equipment and was the RPO for Post Chemical. I am 90% now, but my question is how does this smoke/munitions report help me? What would be my reason to file; Exposure!!!!

    Thanks,

  2. Jonathan,

    Your reason to file is because you deserve 100-1000 percent disability as I do. Jonathan, I was a 54B001, then a 54B002, as an NBCNCOIC in an HHC as an E-3, which I’m assuming you know that we 54B’s and 54C’s usually get to be NCOIC’s before most of our fellow soldiers. I have had fellow veterans let me know not to feel any guilt whatsoever for wanting to appeal for more disability. I have several disabilities and not all have been awarded. Lord willing, I will receive everything I prayed for, in Jesus’ name. I will pray that you receive the disability rating that you deserve in Jesus’ name. It is really neat that you were a Smoke & Flame Specialist. Your MOS was what I wanted to do, NBC Reconnaissance was second, Chemical Mortars, if it were still available, third, BIDS fourth, and Decon last. Instead, I got the best of all worlds NBCNCOIC, with a swift deployment, and immediate disability after returning from deployment. I am glad I ran accross what you shared.

    • Jonathan…. I am a veteran from 81-85. I was a 54c and am in the process of filing a compensation appeal. During my time I was assigned to the 12th Chemical Company and we found ourselves involved in mostly 54E jobs. What I am looking for is anyone who was a 54c that had to use CS gas during there time in. Was hoping you could help.

  3. Jonathan let’s talk I maybe in the Sam situation as you I tried calling a number off the Internet but it was busy.

    Thanks Steve

  4. I am working with A Veteran who was a 54Ba and has been suffering from a rare form of MS with all types of virus and bacterias associated with it. Can anyone provide me with help to connect this.
