We are but a few of the Survivors of the 1977-1980 Enewetak Atoll Atomic Debris Cleanup Mission in the Marshall Islands.
Our main focus is to help each other with information and moral support during challenging times of our declining health.
Our secondary focus is to urge Congress to change the current laws and recognize soldiers of the cleanup mission as “veterans who participated in radiation-risk activities during active service.”
We have been blessed with a donation of 27 photographs from an Anonymous Lojwa Animal who donated them to the NAAV.
Keith Whittle, of the National Association of Atomic Veterans donated them to our website 20 January 2015.
If you are the owner of these photographs, please speak up and let us know. We would like to give you credit for sharing them.
9/2/2015 Update: Scott McKenzie has spoken up and claimed his photographs.
Thank You Scott McKenzie for your contribution to our website and for your military service!
Please leave your comments below if you can shed any light about any of those photographs.
Who do you recognise?
What descriptions can you provide on what is happening in any of the photographs?
We urge our supporters to encourage their politicians to create legislation which will include Enewetak Atoll Atomic Cleanup Participants in the U.S. Government’s definition of a veteran “who participated in radiation-risk activities during active service.”
