U.S. Sailors Sue TEPCO

That headline kind of says it.

U.S. sailors from the USS Ronald Reagan who were offloading humanitarian supplies to towns affected by radiation contamination after the March 11 disasters hit the northeastern past of Japan are indeed suing TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power COmpany) who own the Dai-ichi nuclear power facility.

Claiming they were exposed to radiation contamination while doing their duty, a group of eight sailors have taken the unprecedented action.

The full story can be found on the Stars And Stripes U.S. military website HERE.

As an aside, General Stormin' Norman Schwarzkopf , Retired, has passed away at the age of 78.

Cheers
