The first Fukushima-irradiated soldier from the USS Ronald Reagan, Theodore Holcomb, has died - of synovial sarcoma on April 26, 2014. He was the father of a 5-year-old girl.
The USS Ronald Reagan was employed in a rescue mission immediately following the earthquake, tsunami, and meltdowns at the Daiichi nuclear reactors at Fukushima, Japan in March 2011. They were sailed right into the
situation, were never given protective equipment or verbal warnings, and were exposed to massive levels of radioactivity. The sailors drank and bathed in contaminated
water and sat under contaminated snow for two days as they were fried with radiation.
You have to ask yourself, how is that even possible? How did a U.S. naval ship with radioactivity-detecting equipment allow such a travesty to occur?
more than 80 sick and dying sailors have joined a class action lawsuit
against the Tokyo Electric Power Company. They should also be suing the U.S. Navy.
Thyroid problems, loss of limb use, leukemia, testicular cancer, and unremitting gynecological bleeding are just some of the radiation-related illnesses sailors from the USS Ronald Reagan are now suffering.
Immediately following the initial disaster, the USS Ronald Reagan sailed around for weeks, too radioactive to be accepted at multiple ports.
But inexplicably in August 2013, a San Diego Chargers NFL play camp put on for the children of U.S. Navy sailors was allowed onboard the USS Ronald Reagan, despite
the fact that it is radioactively contaminated.
You can't make this stuff up.
