Veterans Sue Army Over Chemical Testing

Veterans who were used in chemical and biological testing from 1922 to 1975 have filed a class action lawsuit against the U. S. Army. If they are successful, the Army will have to explain to anyone who was used in testing exactly what substances they were given and any known risks. The Army would also have to provide those veterans with health care for any illnesses that result, in whole or in part, from the testing. The law firm representing the veterans estimates at least 70,000 troops were used in the testing, including World War II veterans exposed to mustard gas. In June, an appeals court ruled in favor of the veterans. The Army has filed for a rehearing.
