Mustard Gas Tag

Back in June 2015, a report by National Public Radio revealed that the VA continued to deny compensation to soldiers used as test subjects for mustard gas.  According to the report, approximately 60,000 veterans of World War II were subjected to tests in which they were exposed to toxic mustard gas in exchange for two weeks of extra vacation. When records about the tests were declassified in 1990, many began seeking VA disability benefits.
