That's a very scary thing to think about. But I am going out on a limb here and will say that I think there have been some nuclear incidents in the
I remember in the eight grade, our history teacher was telling us about what would happen if a nuclear bomb hit Dayton, Ohio, because that is where
Wright Patterson is. Come to think of it, what he may have been telling us was that a nuclear bomb could come from one of the planes there. Anyway, we
lived 60 miles northwest of Dayton and right at the edge of what would be affected. So it would be iffy in our situation.
But Goldsboro is close to Raleigh, and that would have been devastating.
Let me share something else from back then. When I was in the third grade, the Army sent doctors to our school to examine the teeth of the boys in my
class. Their parents had signed papers that ordered them not to discuss it or tell the media. This was 1975. They discovered that people in my town
had an unusual thing, their teeth were very strong, so much so that the Army was interested in discovering why this was so. They passed it off as our
ground having so much Strontium, that they said was naturally occurring. But Strontium is a by-product of a nuclear blast also.
And even more interesting is that in our town, four of us who were in the same class, born the same year, have Multiple Sclerosis. The town is very
small and everyone knows everyone else and there has been no one else born before or after 1967 that have Multiple Sclerosis.
I never knew anyone from my town with it, and even now, there is still just us four. We were all born in 1967, but grew up in different areas around
the town. I lived two miles north of town, two lived in town and the other lived south of town. There was never a nuclear blast in our county,
otherwise people would have talked about it, but it seems strange to me that the only year the Army sent doctors to our school, was for my class. They
were testing people born in 1967. Something must have happened prior to 1966, the year we were all conceived, in that town.
I does not seem unreasonable to me that perhaps there had been a nuclear spill in town. I know that Multiple Sclerosis does not seem to come from
nuclear radiation and that more people should have gotten cancer, but at the same time, why the interest in the amount of Strontium in our
groundwater? Why would the Army take an interest in a mundane geological survey?
