More veterans report cancer after being stationed in toxic base

Reports indicate an increasing number of veterans who served at a base in Uzbekistan have been reporting cancer. As per a report by McClatchy, the Pentagon was aware that K2 (Karshi-Khanabad), a former Soviet and Uzbek base, was contaminated with radioactive processed uranium, chemical weapons remnants, among others. Despite this 7,000 troops were deployed there between 2001 & 2005.

This is an outrage!! It was KNOWN and the military still had 7000 of our HEROES live there???? I want someone's head to roll. And if they are already dead- dig them up to cut their head off. This is beyond comprehension. They KNEW?!?!?! Bastards. .

The US military knowingly exposed servicemembers to toxic chemicals? This is unprecedented and has never happened before!?!?

Sucks that they don't care enough about our servicemen to look out for them. Fighting is dangerous, but they signed up for that. This is something else, something avoidable.

Goes to show you they don't care about the lower level troops. Canon fodder?
