They worked on a hazardous top secret experiment called Project SHAD. America’s race against the Russians in the 1960s to develop biological and chemical weapons. Now many of those men are sick and asking why their government won’t take care of them. In 1965 Lieutenant Jack Alderson commanded one of the smallest fleets in the Navy. Just five light tugboats. But his mission was so important it was authorized directly by the president. A secret mission codenamed Project SHAD, testing chemical and biological weapons using monkeys held in cages on the open decks. Military agents would spray the boats with VX nerve gas, Sarin gas, E.coli and other deadly microbes. Sailors weren’t supposed to be exposed, but they were. Both in the tests and in the cleanup afterwards.

Some jets leave a trail behind them. Other jets at the same flight level, same altitude, don’t. And you know instead of just getting into are they spraying us or what’s changed the jet fuel or what’s changed the atmosphere, there are tens of thousands of declassified admissions under different programs where different Pentagon programs, different agencies of the government, have tested chemical, biological, and radiological agents on the American people.
