- 6-10-2002 There were some 113 tests that were
made. The only ones that have been released thus far are some 12 of the 113 tests. According to the sources I have, in those 12, there were a
total of 4,300 sailors who were exposed to these chemical and biological agents that were sprayed on or over the ships in the Pacific
in the 1970s. Of those 4,300 sailors, only 622 have been notified and have been notified by mail.
By the way, how it came to my attention is 51 of those 622 happen to reside in the State of Florida.

of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Rep. Mike Thompson (D) of
California plan to introduce legislation in their respective chambers next
week, urging the Pentagon to reveal more information about the tests, known
as "Project SHAD". Eleven other members of Congress have signed
the request from Thompson. They have attached a provision on to Senate bill,
S-2514, known as the National Defense Authorization Act, to fund the
declassification of Project SHAD.
- The President has vowed to veto the bill.
The tests involved substances that the military believed at the time to be
harmless. (read substances) But evidence now shows that some could be harmful.
- The Secretary of veterans affairs, Anthony
Principi, urged Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to declassify more of the
tests "as quickly as possible"
