Operation Stand Together

OPERATION STAND TOGETHER represents the collective interests of United States military veterans and their families, who seek to raise awareness to chronic, life-long illnesses and disabling conditions directly resulting from nuclear, biological, and chemical toxin exposures during their active duty service. To that end, we welcome members from all branches of service, as well as their family members. By raising awareness and respectfully voicing our experiences and concerns in an organized, patriotic, and democratic manner, our goal is to significantly improve the lives of those affected through national recognition, legislative reform, healthcare assistance, and disability compensation for those in need.

Military-Related Toxins

There are well over a hundred United States military installations that have been identified as contaminated by the Environmental Protection Agency. Many of which, were identified after decades of activities and exposures to our nation’s military service men and women. Additionally, tens of thousands of combat veterans were exposed to toxins, ranging from Agent Orange in Vietnam to the recent burn pits in the Gulf War.
Sadly, many of the affected veterans are seriously ill, disabled, unemployed, and dying as a result of their past exposures. The effects have caused cancers and disorders involving the following systems: neurological, autoimmune, reproductive, respiratory, hematological, musculoskeletal, and gastrointestinal.

Toxic veterans are experiencing a combination of rare disorders and diseases, rather than a single issue. In many cases, the effects of their toxic exposure have been passed on to their descendants. In spite of several efforts to enact necessary legislation that would acknowledge these atrocities and provide the necessary relief and assistance, the majority of legislative bills are ignored and passed

One-Day Event

A culmination of this effort will be a one-day event, which is being planned for May 20, 2017 in Washington, DC. The FREE, family-friendly, public event will include guest speakers, film/video excerpts, variety of musical entertainment, and information booths for attendees.over.

We drank water at Camp LeJeune in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s which was contaminated with dry cleaning fluid. Neither us or the U S Marine Corps or Navy were aware of it at the time. It was discovered recently. On illness it could cause is Leukemia which m buddy had and caused his death.
