FACT FINDER: New lawsuit claims Fallon cancer cluster isn't over and leaking fuel pipeline is cause

you know I live in Fallon also, and just like the agent orange defoliant coverup from viet nam for all these 35 years or so, they are also doing it here, but to be fair on both sides, a lot of the claims between 97 and 2001 were also from transient military families from elsewhere, of course that is swept under the carpet for the better, so I am sorry about all of this problem that is supposed to be here, but more clusters elsewhere in the us of a are popping up,, so to actually put a finger on it, that is hard to do. Now I do feel a tremendous sorrow for the loss of our young ones, but I have put 7 kids and grandkids through ec best and so far heaven help them, they are fine,, I flew and was around jp4 jp5 jet fuel for many years, even used it for lighter fluid of sorts in nam, I am also diagnosed as being afflicted with agent orange and all the problems associated with it, I wonder why people aren't aware of the problem for the vets. anyway, I just don't think there is enough evidence to scare the people of fallon away. I am only saying

There must be something the people of Fallon can do if there was a coverup by the city or county. My Grandson went to EC Best during that time. Each time a child was diagnosed with leukemia parents lived with fear that their child could be next, are we going to relive this again with a different type of cancer caused by the same exposure.All cases of cancer in Fallon should be documented and compared with national averages.

This has been ongoing for years but suppressed by the powers to be. Anyone at the city or county level saying they were not aware of the pipeline passing by the school isn’t telling the truth. That pipeline is in the emergency plan for the county and I assure you, they know every foot of it. In 2004, there was a catastrophic failure at Harrigan road and Highway 50. This is on the playground side of EC Best School. The jet fuel pored in to the playground and killed the grass. There are pictures of that event.
