Last year, Crete, along with another veteran, filed a lawsuit against the federal government. “The government said they have secured the area so that there would be no further spread of the contagion,” Crete said at the time The daily email. “The way they secured it was with a barbed wire fence. Now, I don't have a PhD in physics, but a barbed wire fence isn't going to do that.”

Crete, who now campaigns for other aggrieved government workers, said he realized something was wrong after attending a reunion with his old unit. “There are eight of us and six of us have tumors, something like that just can't be normal,” he said. “One of the guys who didn't say his child was born with a tumor.”

He mocked the Defense Department's refusal to officially acknowledge their presence at the base. “They say their plane was there, but we weren't, so the plane flew itself, guarded itself, parked itself and repaired itself. It makes me angry,” Crete said. “Because we are not recognized as having a sense of duty, people with children are dying without any benefits for those children or that widow.”
