Good Morning Marines,
I am currently dealing with a nasty illness, my doctor believes is related to chemical exposure during my time at El Toro and Tustin during the 70's. I am fighting with the VA for compensation and disability. If any one out there is in a similar situation, please join in and we can fight this thing together. I was forced to retire due to the severity of my illness and the side effects of the meds I am on are just as bad as the illness. I see now what they mean by practicing medicine - the doctors are still guessing and keeping me medicated so I can participate in life. Sucks!!
If anyone out there has any answers, please join in!

PM me. I have some thoughts that may help you. I deal with many patients with similar problems - pesticide exposures, chemicals, heavy metals, etc.

Here is a link from an attorney site that contains information re: TCE water contamination at El Toro: http://www.militarycontamination.com/IrvineCA.php
Also check out the link on the site to mwsg37.

Do some searching on the web. There is quite a bit out there about toxicity at El Toro. Start with googling "toxic water at MCAS El Toro" or "TCE at MCAS El Toro."
I assume you have a diagnosis?

Thanks for jumping on board and helping out. I will continue to research and work on my health issues. I was forced to retire from the PO due to the severity of my illness. I can now focus and my health and helping others in the same situation.
Thanks again, Marine for your input.
