Well, I'll say this much for you guys.
When OP TOM first went down, my UNIT deployed to Misawa AFB where we helped in monitoring all the RAD coming to and from the base.
Within a week, I had several nosebleeds. I mean a lot of nosebleeds, as my battles too.
In addition to the nosebleeds, I had severe headaches, not all of us, like with the nosebleeds, but some of us had the headaches.
I had an ADM-3000, which measured in Rem, of course we never got hits in that size, it was all in MREM.
We found that vehicles coming from down south were being hit by wind direction that was heading West, so they were driving right through it.
The Hot spots were the grill, tires and wheel wells. Pretty much the entire front of the vehicle.
We did get some pretty huge hits though and were told to back up, them Japanese were scared as hell.
So nosebleeds? yes I'll say. Its funny that we never got a straight answer on that btw.
