After revealing that hundreds of National Guard and Reserve Soldiers in medical hold at Fort Stewart, Ga., were being kept in hot cement barracks, UPI further investigates the issue of sick, injured and wounded U.S troops. The investigation reveals that conditions similar to Fort Stewart also prevail in Fort Knox. Further, the report includes a detailed account linking a number of U.S non-combat illnesses and deaths in Iraq and elsewhere to possible side effects of anthrax and smallpox vaccines. Also, after the death of NBC reporter David Bloom from a blood clot in Iraq, Benjamin started tracking other cases in which soldiers there and in the U.S had become sick or died from blood clots after getting their vaccines.
