Add the West Virginia National Guard troops to the list of Iraqi war vets exposed to chemicals while guarding KBR contractors at Qarmat Ali in 2003. Here is a recent news story about the filing on behalf of the West Virginia soldiers.
Rocky Bixby and I met a few of the West Virginia Guard soldiers when Rocky and I ventured back to Washington D.C. for Senate Democratic Policy Committee hearings in August. I was struck at the time that the stories of representatives of the Indiana and West Virginia Guard were very similar to Rocky Bixby’s story.
As with the cases in Indiana and Oregon, we’ll be following the developments in the West Virginia case.
