Re: DU Scandal Explodes — Horrendous U.S. Casualties
I urge everyone with a printer to run multiple copies of this article and give it to any friends or family members who are considering joining the military, most likely because of the jobless situation here in the US or large student loans.
If you have the spirit of an activist, take copies with you to the nearest Recruiting Office and place them in the hands of all individuals who are thinking about "joining up."
If you manage to duck the bullets, you are still likely to die or be permanently disabled just for having spent time in Iraq and/or Afganistan. Exposure to DU can be brought back, thereby exposing your wife/husband, family, etc. DU also causes birth defects.
I hate it when they say, "He gave his life for his country." Nobody gives their life for anything. We steal the lives of these kids. We take it away from them. They don't die for the honor and glory of their country. We kill them."-- Admiral Gene LaRocque
