    Dear Congressman Quayle,

    I am writing you today urging you to co-sponsor HR2052, The Fort McClellan Health Registry Act.

    The situation that former members of the military have described regarding conditions at the former base Fort McClellan paint a picture of exposure to toxic elements that is simply unacceptable. Like many other cases of exposure that lead to long-term effects, it is only right for our men and women in uniform to receive proper evaluative care. HR2052, which would establish the registry, is the first step to ensuring our promise to veterans.

    Congressman, I urge you to talk further with Rep Paul Tonko to hear the stories that veterans of Fort McClellan have told. We owe our men and women who served and who might be at risk from health problems they received at Fort McClellan at least this much.
