  1. I was there in the aftermath of the crash searching for the h-bombs. We spent 3 weeks living in a tent in the middle of the presumed debris field. No protection or dosimeters to monitor our exposure to radiation. Congress finally acknowledged our exposure with the passage of the PACT Act in August 2022, 57 years after the fact. Thus far all we’ve received is recognition. Disillusioned? You bet.
