Project SHAD, an acronym for Shipboard Hazard and Defense, was part of the joint service chemical and biological warfare test program conducted during the 1960s. Project SHAD encompassed tests designed to identify US warships' vulnerabilities to attacks with chemical or biological warfare agents and to develop procedures to respond to such attacks while maintaining a war-fighting capability. Although classified, the Department of Defense has been actively pursuing declassification of relevant medical information. To date twelve SHAD projects have been evaluated and released for your review.
The SHAD program planned as many as a hundred individual tests and was part of the larger Deseret Test Center program. Many tests were never actually executed. DoD investigators plan to look at all Deseret Test Center’s chemical and biological tests conducted between 1963 and 1970
Of the 4,300 sailors known to be involved, to our knowledge, only 622 have been notified.

"The word "simulant" is BS! You shouldn't use it .. (we can't edit articles we didn't write)
>>> BG = Bacillus globigii is a LIVING BACTERIUM
>>> ZINC CADMIUM SULFIDE is a CHEMICAL compound
The DOD doesn't like to tell the public or the sailors involved that for a reason. And by using the term you assist them in their continuing spin campaign to in lying about what really took place in this still secret program."

If you want your readers/viewers to get ACCURATE information about PROJECT SHAD
some of the info on your SHAD.ORG site is NOT accurate.
It is very important that you get accurate info on SHAD -- the DOD spin on this story
(more importantly the US Army -- who is the keeper of the classified secrets on SHAD)
is still false and misleading -- although mostly successful to date with most of the "mainstream" media
including many of the links you list ( some of them have serious factual errors)
So please be aware of this when reading any articles about ProjectShad.
We know there is misinformation, so don't be afraid to point out the
misinformation to the webmaster. thanks
