Tweets from Dr. Yuri Hiranuma, June 11, 2014: First death of a USS Ronald Reagan sailor hit by radiation from Fukushima Daiichi while on Operation Tomodachi. Theodore Holcomb, a former USS Ronald Reagan aviation mechanic during Operation Tomodachi, died of synovial sarcoma on April 26, 2014. Holcomb was a plaintiff in the lawsuit against TEPCO. He began experiencing “breathing difficulty, pain in right shoulder, and excessive heart rate while still in service. He was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma next to his heart, causing lung and heart issues, in late 2011. Holcomb was 38 years old and a father of a five-year-old girl.

Attorney for US Navy Sailors: Third death from exposure to Fukushima fallout — Baby with brain cancer has died — Reporters afraid to publish stories related to case — Professor: USS Reagan sailors were first people to be hit by plume outside of plant (VIDEOS) (ENENews, July 26, 2015):

Attorney Charles Bonner, representing US service members exposed to Fukushima fallout, Jul 21, 2015 (at 10:45 in): We now have a 250+ young sailors with all kinds of illnesses, we’ve had three die. We had one of the sailors who came home and impregnated his wife. They gave birth to a little baby born with brain cancer and cancer down the spine, lived for two years, and just died in March of this year.

Q&A with Charles Bonner, Jul 21, 2015 (at 4:45 in): I was just interviewed by some reporter about this case, he said, “Now, I want to interview you about this case and the current status of your lawsuit — but, you all have won, so do I have anything to worry about? Do I have to look over my shoulder if I do this story, if I publish this story?” I said, “Yeah you do.” Because trillions of dollars do not go away easily. It’s amazing that people are afraid to even do a story on this because they’re afraid of these corporations.

COVER-UP: US Navy sailors disappear as government, doctors bury truth about Fukushima radiation (Natural News, March 10, 2015):

U.S. Navy sailors exposed to radioactive fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster have been falling ill, even as the Defense Department insists that they were not exposed to dangerous levels of radiation. Many of the sailors have now joined in a class action lawsuit against Fukushima operators and builders Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), Toshiba, Hitachi, Ebasco and General Electric.

Even if they wanted to — which many do not — the sailors would be unable to sue the Navy. According to a Supreme Court ruling from the 1950s known as the Feres Doctrine, soldiers cannot sue the government for injuries resulting directly from their military service.

During Tomodachi? Yes, Morales told her. Why? The doctor answered that he had removed six thyroid glands in recent months from sailors who had been on that ship… [In Feb. 2014, doctors] found a malignant growth in her thyroid gland. Morales… found that many of the symptoms she had been suffering matched up with those experienced by people exposed to radiation. “Some of the doctors I visited confirmed as much,” she says.

To the sick USS Ronald Reagan sailors:

I know you have been exposed to very high levels of radiation and you need real help or you will get even sicker and die.

Contact me. I will help you.

I will tell you what to do and where to go to get professional help.

Your medical doctors do not have a clue what to do.

They cannot help you, even if they wanted to.

I can and I will help you, if you contact me.

I will tell you how you can get your life back (free of charge).

Personally I do not believe that one of those sailors will ever contact me, but at least I’ve offered my help.

Isn’t it sad that nobody knows what to do or offers help to them?

I am sure that those health professionals that really know how to help them have never heard about what happened to those sailors off the coast of Japan.

They also probably don’t know how bad Fukushima really was (and still is), because they are too busy teaching their patients how to cure themselves from cancer, diabetes, heart disease, … , etc.

I know that for a fact, because I’ve been one of them.

  • 21:30 in — November 2011 I noticed something was wrong… The black-out was the first thing… I started dealing with gastrointestinal issues, at first I thought I was coming down with a stomach bug… Fevers as high as 102.9°F… January 2012 was the first time I was hospitalized… [They] sent me home with a sinus infection. Three days later I was readmitted to the hospital because my lymph nodes were swelling… that’s when my legs buckled and the muscle weakness started to onset… it’s been ascending from legs, trunk, arms, hands… I can’t really use the muscles much at all. I’m down to about 20 lbs. of grip strength in my hands, which is barely functional… I do have to catheterize every 4 hours in order to empty the bladder. The migraines still get worse. The fevers still come and go, and they keep calling it a fever of unknown origin. My vitamin D is in the gutter, they just keep calling it an unspecified vitamin D deficiency… 2nd degree burns on my legs just from being out in the sun for 3 or 4 hours… that had never been a concern. Nobody can figure it out. I’ve been getting these rashes that come and go; they’ll go up my arms, my neck, around my eyes, back, stomach, legs. I deal with tremors and spasms… I am [in a wheelchair]… There’s days I don’t even get out of bed… for a long time I thought I was the only one. I had no idea there were other individuals that were even sick or dealing with ailments… Doctors wouldn’t tell us anything… I’ve had doctors tell me maybe you’re better off not knowing what you’re dealing with… You can’t have over 100 or 200 people sick, and one who has died last April, and say there is absolutely no health risk.

Interview with Charles Bonner, attorney for sickened USS Reagan sailors exposed to Fukushima releases, Linda Moulton Howe’s EarthFiles, Mar. 27, 2014:

Transcript excerpt starting at 2m 30s in

  • One sailor had been told to go up to the top of the ship and take down the American flag. He went and took the American flag down and folded it up in the triangle way they usually folded up the flag, and put it under his arm, and went all the way down to the bottom of the ship to store it. By the time he reached the bottom of the ship, his whole left side where the flag was had become inflamed. They immediately stripped his clothes off, hosed him down, washed him down with soap. He is naked there in front of all the sailors, men and women, because it became an extreme emergency. Then 17 other sailors were immediately scrubbed down.
  • He had to be discharged, he and his wife — he had ended up marrying a young lady on the ship — they both had to be discharged for medical reasons. She developed major leukemias, uterine cancers, uncontrolled uterine bleeding. And they both received a medical discharge.

AP, Apr 7, 2014: Nearly 80 U.S. sailors are […] alleging [Tepco] lied about the high level of radiation in the area [and] repeatedly said there was no danger to the crew when they were actually being blanketed with radiation that has since led to dozens of cancer cases and a child being born with birth defects [Tepco] said that there was no way the commanders of the aircraft carrier would have relied on the utility […] “It’s wholly implausible… military commanders in charge of thousands of personnel and armed with some of the world’s most sophisticated equipment, relied instead only on the press releases and public statements of a foreign electric utility co.”

Stuart H. Smith, Esq., attorney with decades of experience in radiation cases, Mar. 3, 2014: I noted last week that the news from the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan keeps getting worse and worse […] every week brings new reports of leaks or potential meltdowns […] there’s growing evidence a large number of Americans already face serious health threats […] the U.S. Navy crew that was dispatched to Japan for disaster relief […] $1 billion lawsuit [was] filed by the sailors […] Many of the sailors are already suffering devastating health impacts […] Among the 81 plaintiffs in the federal class action are a sailor who was pregnant during the mission, and her “Baby A.G.,” born that October with multiple genetic mutations. [Source] […] This situation is tragic, and it’s stunning that their lawsuits and the related information that has been revealed so far has not received more play in the American media.

Interview with nuclear engineer Dave Lochbaum, Union of Concerned Scientists’ Nuclear Safety Project director, TruNews, Feb. 18, 2014 (39:00 in) Q: When will we start seeing a spike in diseases and death rates attributed to Fukushima? A: Theoretically we’ve seen that already. Some of the consequences of radiation-induced illnesses are low-weight births, genetic defects, things like that — which would have already occurred. Some of the latent cancers, the latency period for cancers takes 5-6 years before you see a statistically discernible increase. But one thing that is known is that it’s going to get worse, nobody is going to get healed by this.

Stars & Stripes, Jan. 27, 2014: Congress has instructed the Defense Department to launch an inquiry into potential health impacts on Navy first-responders from Japan’s March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. […] While the instruction is not law, Defense Department officials said that they were taking the request seriously. […] These individuals claim to be suffering from exposure-related ailments such as unexplained cancers, excessive bleeding, thyroid issues and ailments including loss of muscle power, migraines and vision problems. […] The suit was filed in federal court in San Diego in December 2012 seeking damages and funds to cover medical expenses. The original eight complainants were on the USS Ronald Reagan, but the suit has since expanded to include those who served aboard the USS Essex and USS Germantown as well as attached Marines. […] some claim they were pressured into signing forms confirming they had been given iodine pills when none had been provided.

‘Consider This’, Jan. 23, 2014: Navy personnel say they’re experiencing mysterious symptoms, including hemorrhaging and cancer [after serving iduring the 3/11 rescue mission in and around Japan] Senior Chief Michael Sebourn was assigned to investigate radiation levels in the air and on American military aircraft […] After seeing at least 10 doctors and undergoing three MRIs and two ultrasounds, he still doesn’t know what’s wrong with him. […] Sebourn says he very suddenly lost 50 to 60 percent of the power in the right side of his body. This shocked him when he walked into the gym one day and could only do his workout on his left side – he says his right side just didn’t work. Sebourn also says his right arm is now an inch-and-a-half shorter than his left when he flexes – another mystery. Administrative Officer Steven Simmons was on the USS Ronald Reagan […] Simmons suddenly lost 20 to 25 pounds, started running fevers, getting night sweats and tremors, and his lymph nodes started to swell. He can no longer use his legs and spends all of his time in a wheelchair. His weakness has traveled up to his core and arms, and the signals between his brain and his bladder have failed. He uses a catheter every four hours.

Interview with Navy Lt. Steve Simmons, Living on Earth, Jan. 17, 2014: […] We returned from deployment [aboard the USS Ronald Reagan] in September and by November my health started to decline. The first thing I noticed, I was actually driving to work, and I blacked out, and I drove my truck up on a curb. And I had gone to see the doctor to see what was going on. They ran labs, couldn’t figure anything out, and from there they sent me up to Walter Reed, to the infectious disease clinic, and same thing […] By this point [in January], I unexpectedly dropped between 20 to 25 pounds and my lymph nodes started swelling. From January to March I was running a pretty solid fever as high as 102.9. I was discharged from the hospital the first time for a so-called “sinus infection”, and three days later I was actually readmitted because that’s when my lymph nodes started swelling. During that second hospitalization I was coming out of the restroom and I stopped and my legs just buckled. And that was when the weakness started […] it just started progressing further and further. Then, shortly after that, it got to the point where [my wife] Summer was actually carrying me up and down the stairs. […] I spend all my days in a wheelchair now. My muscle weakness just continued to progress, up the legs, into my arms, my hands. Now the latest issue that I deal with is neurogenic bladder, now the signals aren’t getting from the brain to the bladder, so now I actually have to catheterize every four hours. >> Full broadcast available here
