A second time…… Lawsuits might wake them up…. I am a British Royal Navy veteran of this war with similar medical conditions yet in Britain our government declines the link between these conditions.
They are probably waiting until more of us are dead, like they did with the nuclear test veterans before they acknowledge GWO. I think your country is holding the light to show other countries the way.
