I glad that AFSC is puting together this Radiation workshop and hopefull some other Union Members will also attend. I’ve worked repairing Submarines at PHNSY for more then 30+ years and I got Kidney Cancer for my efforts. I have not filed a workers comp claim becauce the federal government rarely pays for cancer because you can’t prove where it came from.
