My name is Daniel S – Dates at George AFB 1987-1992 – Active duty, Nav-Aids/ MET-NAV – 2067 COMM Squadron
I lived off and on base the entire 5 years, some in the barracks, some in base housing. I lived in Adelanto for approximately 1 of those years. Water quality was very poor. It was a pale brown color, and at times darker. there was visible debris in the water. It also had an odor.
The base would send out letters assuring residents the water had passed all safety tests.
I do not recall any pesticide or herbicide problems. (they were available for free on base to keep yards nice in the desert, and to keep roaches at bay)
I was diagnosed with CML [chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML)], a type of Leukemia in July of 2000. Benzene exposure is a possible cause. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17119196
I was never informed of any exposure to toxic, radioactive or dangerous materials while at George AFB.
The Air Force, DOD, or VA never notified me about a possible exposure to any toxic, radioactive, or dangerous materials at George AFB.
