Description

Deseret News story disclosed that the Army's Dugway Proving Ground and Fort Douglas in Utah operated a small secret Navy during the Vietnam War to test biological and chemical arms at sea. Several sailors now question whether the cancer and other strange diseases they suffer were caused by their work. They are having trouble with their veteran's claims for help because the work was so secret and will not even be confirmed by the Defense Department.(Oct. 22, 1995)
