My name is Stephanie and my husband was Carl Mitchell who served at George AFB during the years of 1972-1976. He served with 35th Field Maintenance SQ (TAC) as an Aerospace Ground Equipment Repairman. He died in 2010 from Tumor Lysis Syndrome after a 12-year fight with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Carl always felt the base had everything to do with his disease. He NEVER knew that the base had been classified as an EPA Superfund site. I have now had an appeal pending for 6 years to receive survivor benefits.
I have tried to get Carl’s records from the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) and have had no luck. All they will send is the same records Carl already had.
If anyone had served with Carl “MITCH” Mitchell, I would like to hear from you. I have been in touch with Congressman Darryl Issa’s office on this matter and hope his office can be of some help to us.
