  • I have watched several videos of what has happened at Ft. McCellan, and now I know why my health is so bad. Basic / AIT 78”-79”
    Permanent duty station 90-92 at McClellan.
    Several years ago I was diagnosed with
    Polycythemia Vera a blood disease which is cancerous. The VA never found the disease in my yearly examination’s. After my liver started to shutdown a civilian doctor told me they had found the disease. Thank God antibiotics kept me alive. I pray there is help for those suffering.
    Thank You.
