Welcome to our forum. Feel free to post a message as long as it is HAWK/HERC related.
I was in Hawk for 13 years and used TCE for cleaning a lot. I have liver damage, kidney damage, thyroid disease, bladder cancer, cataracts and severe disc herniation and spinal stenosis. TCE can cause most of these problems and I get all my medical care at the VA but I have not filed a claim and I doubt it would do any good anyway . From what I've read the VA is pretty lacking in the knowledge of what TCE can do to your health from exposure and to get a VA Dr to say your illness is more likely than not caused by exposure to this chemical is probably going to be hard to do.
MEC. Methyl Ethyl Keytone??
Sorry about spelling.....
Let me know how this goes for you I am going to file a claim also , my older brother has and get some money for this crap. If you read up on this crap its pretty nasty stuff, man I remember getting the crap on me and it burned like hell and made me all red and sore as hell, I was at c 3/59 ADA 75- 77 and D 2/57 ADA78-81 then New Mexico national Guard 81-85 Hawk,never was there safety gear, it also felt pretty good if you splashed it in your eye.
