Enewetak Atoll Nuclear Cleanup Veterans Need Benefits and Compensation

1977-1980 Enewetak Atoll Radiological Cleanup Veterans cleaned up the remnants of 43 nuclear weapons without any protective gear or accurate radiations dose monitoring. No decontamination procedures were in place. These veterans are dying at a rapid rate.
Now 40 years later they still can not get medical or compensation benefits they have well deserved. Out of about 8,000 troops, there are only approximately 400 known survivors. They should be included in the "ATOMIC VETERANS" category and receive the same recognition, medals, and benefits. Please sign this petition to tell our political leaders to stop ignoring this brave group of veterans. This could save lives and care for the widows and children left behind.

Why is this important?

Help these Atomic Cleanup Veterans get the compensation, medical care, and recognition as other Atomic Veterans. My husband has suffered from late-stage colon cancer and after over 7 years he is still fighting for care and compensation. Out of over 8000 participants, there are less than 500 known survivors in which the majority are fighting for their lives, battling cancer, lung issues, thyroid issues, kidney, colon and other ailments from their exposure to the toxins left behind from the 43 Nuclear blasts in the 1950's.
