Daniel S.

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.


I am not a doctor or attorney, and cannot give medical advice or legal advice.

If you, a friend, or loved one has been injured or died as a result of the contamination at a DOD Superfund Site please follow the steps that are outlined at Get Help.
