New campaign from Troops Need You: US Navy personnel exposed to Fukushima nuclear radiation, medical expenses not covered by DoD/VA

WASHINGTON, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As the third anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown approaches on March 11th, most people are not aware of the American face of that disaster. Hundreds of US Navy sailors and Marines conducting humanitarian operations nearby were exposed and need financial assistance to pay for their radiation-related medical needs.

Today is the launch of a campaign to help. See video:

After serving their country, these service members went from enjoying young, healthy lives to suffering life-altering illnesses, ranging from leukemia to eye sight loss. Sadly, DoD and VA refuse to pay these medical costs. While officials acknowledge broad nuclear radiation exposure, they insist no sailors were exposed enough to suffer symptoms.
