Database of US Soldiers Secretly Exposed to Mustard Gas During WWII

NPR has created a database of World War II soldiers who were secretly exposed to mustard gas. “Officials at the Department of Veterans Affairs told NPR that since 1993, the agency had been able to locate only 610 test subjects, to offer compensation to those who were permanently injured. NPR’s database, compiled over six months, includes more than 3,900 individuals and information about the last known location of more than 1,700 of them.” NPR says this database will continue to be updated over time.
