I was stationed at George from 88 until it closed.  Two years after I left my youngest daughter was diagnosed with a rare thyroid cancer normally associated with radiation exposure and had to have her thyroid removed and hasn’t had any other problems.  Both of my daughters had thyroid issues after we left, but only my youngest developed cancer from it.
