There are actually two USS Roosevelts and i dont know which one he is on....there is the USS Roosevelt CVN 71 and there is the USS Roosevelt DDG 80. Even if he was on the one that was in Newport News til the 9th ...2 - 3 days is plenty of time to make it there.

2-3 days is plenty of time to make it to Japan from virginia? Are you serious?

And then 2-3 days to get back again. It's a fast ship, apparently.

Someone posted this link in another thread talking about the Japan crisis. I thought it was a good source that really answered your question. It answers a lot of other questions including how is it treated. I didn't want to post too large of a quote. I think I'm fine with a couple of paragraphs especially since they both pertain to your questions about your cousin. I pray he is able to pull through.

Yes they got the Q and A mixed up for the first question and answer I posted.

Bloomberg Businessweek Health Effect of Radiation Poisoning questions and answers


A: How is radioactive contamination spread? Q: People who are externally contaminated with radioactive material can contaminate other people or surfaces that they touch. For example, people who have radioactive dust on their clothing may spread the radioactive dust when they sit in chairs or hug other people. People who are internally contaminated can expose people near them to radiation from the radioactive material inside their bodies. The body fluids (blood, sweat, urine) of an internally contaminated person can contain radioactive materials. Coming in contact with these body fluids can result in contamination and/or exposure.

Q: What are the symptoms of radiation poisoning? A: The first symptoms of acute radiation syndrome are typically nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. These symptoms can start within minutes to days of exposure and can last for days. After that, a person with acute radiation syndrome may look and feel healthy for a short time, then become sick again with loss of appetite, fatigue, fever and possibly seizures and coma. This stage may last a few hours or several months. Radiation poisoning also typically causes skin damage.

If radiation is present in your family members system,and he is poisoned that severely. Chances are you willl pick up radiation just from bieng around him.

They say that pottassium iodide or iodine? Protects from radiation,so my guess is bananas are the perfect meal.

Its very sad to hear this story,hope he gets better.

Newport News is near Norfolk, Virginia. It is virtually the other side of the World from Japan. It is impossible for the ship to have reached Japan in the time. Absolutely impossible.

So now he is magically back in Japan? I thought he was in quarantine on a ship? And then he was back in the US, in a hospital? Why would the military send him back to Japan?

I'm waiting for a response to this because ships have different email address than navy.mil

Here are pics taking of the George Washington from my phone

This is neither here nor there based on the fact that the contaminated people appear to still be on the ship, but to you and all the others making assumptions in this thread and getting stuck on this particular detail, they can and do fly sick sailors home all the time. Even though they're in the Navy, they are allowed on and even have planes and helicopters.

First of all this isnt the place to get personal. The fact that you throw around stereotypes and insults only makes you look like the ignorant one. And if you want to talk about credentials and intellect I am not originally from Charlotte, NC...i grew up 30 minutes outside of Washington,DC where plenty of the most intelligent people in the world live.......Oh and i hold a Bachelors as well as Masters Degree in Sports Medicine. So before you go assuming anything i would make sure you get your facts straight on who is posting and who is educated. Because by jumping the gun and assuming im some random redneck from NC shows you obviously have no insight on what real intellect is. If you knew anything about Charlotte, NC you would also know that it is the 2nd largest banking city in the country next to New York and contains some of the wealthiest and smartest individuals this country has in respect to business, politics, and entrepreneurship.



AHAHAHAHAHAH

WHAT are you going on about? you live near a city within which dwells intelligent individuals? and that entitles you to Hoax on the issue of the week

shameful, kid

Sorry, I call BS and fearmongering. I've been on a float aboard a US Navy ship (The USS Bataan, LHD-5, if you must know). They have decon equipment on board the ships, any personnel exposed to radiation would be deconed first. Also, the ships can be sealed airtight against any radiation threat. A servicemember would not be brought stateside to a hospital near theire hometown, as a military hospital such as NNMC Bethesda would be much better prepared to take on such a thing. I've heard the reports of servicemembers given iodine, to counteract the radiation. Radiation isn't a disease, its not contagious. You don't have to Q anyone...

Yup! When I was aboard LHD5 I seem to remember my local ship email address being something like MyNameCPL@Bataan.Navy.Mil or something similar to that.

That's all the proof I need. This is a very intelligent person posting here. Notice how throwing around stereotypes is pointed out by the poster as being ignorant. The poster then goes on to let everyone know why he is so intelligent.

The poster then uses a stereotype to describe random people from North Carolina as having no intellect. I wonder if the poster equates a foot in the mouth as a sports injury. If so he can write himself a prescription.

You are correct. I just posted an informative thread here detailing shipboard procedures.

Hey, thats a pretty detailed looking thread! I'll have to check that out for curiosity's sake. All I know is just from first hand experience aboard. And I was in the Corps so I wasn't privy to all the little details.

You need to get a new TV. Sky , ITV and the BBC are most certainly showing live reports here in Europe. I am watching Anna Botting from Sky as I type and she is live on air every 30 minutes or so.

You don't get 'quarantined' for radiation sickness for heavens sake.

Those were the symptoms that i was told he was having. It has been over 24 hours since we have heard anything and since then numerous family members have made contact with the Navy and we have received reports starting with theres no radiation threats (which is obviously untrue), to the ship wasnt there, to the ship was there, to yes some were exposed. So even the military is having mixed stories right now. That unfortunately is all the info i have now and as soon as i have more updates i will definitely keep you guys posted. Thank you for those who are keeping an open mind and once again to the doubters i thank you for the motivation.

I'm sorry, but I'm very skeptical of this story. Radiation strong enough to cause those symptoms in that amount of time would have been BIG news by now - there is no way they could keep it secret because people would be dropping like flies.

OP - can you provide anything else to corroborate this story?



I hate to differ but this is just naive what you are saying.

We can expect at least fallout from two reactors which Japan government previously lied about, twice.

Japanese government will lie about almost anything to protect calmness, stability and their precious Honor. Hell I can't blame them for the first two..

But that does mean we need to take a ton of salt with the information they are releasing. Remember that the western media rely on what they hear from Japan.

No one knows what's going on. And the OP of this thread doesn't know it either. He does know that his relative is in the hospital with radiation sickness.


So you're saying that all the reporters over there, are just lying? They're not actually there? Or they are there, but are hiding their massive radiation sickness symptoms from the camera? What about all The friends and family we have over there, they just are lying and going along with the coverup? They are actually very sick and just not telling us this? Obviously this ALL makes sense lol
