Abandoned by US Government, Irradiated Service members Turn to Japan for Help
[snip]

Peter Van Buren Posted onJuly 11, 2017

It was a rescue mission, but one that years later turned the tables on victim and rescuer. Abandoned by their own government, American service members who came to the aid of Japanese disaster victims will now benefit from a fund set up for them by a former prime minister.

Following a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami on March 11, 2011 in Japan, it quickly became clear the rescue work needed far outstripped the capabilities of Japan’s Self Defense Forces. The tsunami, whose waves reached heights of 130 feet, crippled the Fukushima nuclear plant, shutting down its cooling system and causing a nuclear meltdown that devastated the immediate area and at one point threatened to send a radioactive cloud over much of the nation.


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.
Some of those affected had worked in the area of the nuclear disaster, some had flown over it, many had been aboard ships that drew water out of the contaminated ocean to desalinate for drinking. All personnel were denied any special compensation by the US government, who referred back to Japanese authorities’ reports of relatively low levels of radiation, and to the military’s own protective efforts.

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.”

However, five years after the disaster and more than a year after its final report, a Navy spokesperson admitted that 16 US ships from the relief effort remain contaminated. However, the Navy continued, “the low levels of radioactivity that remain are in normally inaccessible areas that are controlled in accordance with stringent procedures.”

Other Parts of the US Government Reacted Very Differently to the Threat

On March 16, five days after the meltdown, the State Department authorized the voluntary departure from Japan of eligible family members of government personnel assigned to the US Embassy in Tokyo and other State Department facilities.

Ten days later, the US military moved over 7,000 military family members out of Japan under what was also called a “voluntary departure.” The effort, codenamed Operation Pacific Passage, also relocated close to 400 military pets.

And around the same time, the American Embassy repeated a Japanese government warning to parents about radioactive iodine being detected in the Tokyo drinking water supply. Tokyo is about 150 miles away from the Fukushima disaster site.

US Servicemembers Sue the Nuclear Plant Owner

After receiving no help from their own government, in 2013 a group of US servicemembers (now numbering 400; seven others have died while the lawsuit winds its way through the courts) filed a lawsuit against the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO, the owner of the nuclear plant) seeking more than two billion dollars.

They don't even bother with any kind of moral standard illusion anymore. It's basically "just follow orders and we'll take care of you". Only, they don't take care of you. They just lied to get you to do stuff. Basic is nothing more than fat camp with fireworks anymore.

I know a nurse that treated some of these sailors. Some were rushed from a ship off the coast of Japan to SAMC (known as BAMC Brooke Army Medical Center at the time) immediately after they started becoming ill. She described her patient(s) as "so irradiated that they glow in the dark."

Re: Abandoned by US Government, Irradiated Service members Turn to Japan for Help
There shouldn't be any question about this. Either there was or was not contamination. IF the testing on the ships indicated high levels, and this was verified with multiple tests - then whatever the Japanese govt says is irrelevant. We KNOW they under reported the levels as a CYA operation to avoid liability.

Obviously in a large enough sample group there will be some people who have symptoms or illnesses that may not be directly attributed to the radiation from this incident. However if the overall count is drastically higher than expected, that is further evidence that these service-persons were exposed and should be compensated.

Will Trump fix another one of Obama's mistakes? We know Obama hates the troops and probably enjoyed this little bonus to his force reduction plans.
