Upon their return home from Iraq, several members of the New York Army National Guard complained of a variety of ailments, including urinary and kidney problems, severe breathing problems, and physical weakness. While the army's medical staff was unable to find out what's wrong with them, an independent medical exam (paid for by the Daily News) shows signs that the soldiers were exposed to radioactive dust produced by depleted uranium shells. Most of the soldiers all came from the 442nd Company, formerly stationed in Samawah, Iraq.
