(KRNV & MyNews4.com) - Tonight at 11pm Elias Johnson has the story of two veterans.

How did two out of four Gulf War Marines develop brain tumors fifteen years after combat? Is it a tragic coincidence, or something they were exposed to?

More importantly, are there more troops out there with the same problem?

Can you say radiation poisoning? A-10s and M1 tanks along with a few other anti-armor weapons used what is called "depleted uranium" aka Du projectiles. These are still "hot" by radiation standards. Many pieces of these were picked up and brought back as souvenirs not knowing they were poison to hold or have. And they don't glow in the dark either. If you have any of these souvenirs now there are still poison in your hands and will cause damage in time.
