November 5, 2007: This website is an archive of the former website, traprockpeace.org, which was created 10 years ago by Charles Jenks. It became one of the most populace sites in the US, and an important resource on the antiwar movement, student activism, 'depleted' uranium and other topics. Jenks authored virtually all of its web pages and multimedia content (photographs, audio, video, and pdf files. As the author and registered owner of that site, his purpose here is to preserve an important slice of the history of the grassroots peace movement in the US over the past decade. He is maintaining this historical archive as a service to the greater peace movement, and to the many friends of Traprock Peace Center. Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK OF TRAPROCK PEACE CENTER, which has reorganized its board and moved to Greenfield, Mass. To contact Traprock Peace Center, call 413-773-7427 or visit its site. Charles Jenks is posting new material to PeaceJournal.org, a multimedia blog and resource center.

the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper...."
>From T.S. Elliot's "The Hollow Men"
A SHAD EULOGY
I know LOTS of hollow men.
They sit back in Congress,
And they make our laws,
They command the Armies,
They give death its Jaws,
They'd feed you SHAD and crumpets,
Into your gaping Maws,
Until the day they stumble forth,
"That's just the way it was!"

I was born in Reading, PA on 2/28/49....at a very young age.
High School Class of 1967, Cathedral High, Denver, CO
I enlisted in the US Navy on 12/13/67 for the Navy Nuclear Power School
and later volunteered for Submarine duty.
My time in Project SHAD was spent aboard the USS Granville S. Hall,
YAG-40, the main Lab Ship for Project SHAD, Shipboard Hazard And
During that time, we operated mostly South of Hawaii, 50 to 200 miles
out to sea. We were re-home ported in late 1969 to Treasure Island, in
San Francisco Bay. We then carried out Bio-Chemical Warfare Testing 35
to 50 miles West of San Francisco, near the Farallon Islands.
After I left the Hall, or "Granny" as we called her...even had a black &
white "refueling flag" with Whistler's Mother depicted on it...I was
sent to Mare Island, California and then to NRTS at Idaho Falls, Idaho.
I never made it to the Nuclear Fleet.
I fell ill and was fraudulently discharged, but not until after I was
threatened with being sent to Vietnam to serve on a Swift Boat or PBR
for allegedly "faking" my illness. Mind you, I was already under threat
of Federal Prison by having signed "secrecy documents" which forbade my
EVER speaking about what we did.
What are they going to do, "Kill me AGAIN?"
I was discharged Honorably from the U.S. Navy on 11/10/70 after serving
only 2 years, 10 months, and 29 days of my original 6-year enlistment.
My discharge papers say NOTHING about my having been on the Hall or in
Project SHAD. When my Senator, Conrad Burns, acquired my military
personnel records, I found that I had been "discharged for physical
disabilities".... with NO Severance pay.... a fact of which I was
unaware for over 30 years.
I now live in Whitefish, Montana and currently have a VA Disability
Claim in progress with 28 physical ailments listed on it. I have had
four heart operations since June, 2002.
To this day, I have NOT received adequate medical care or ANY
compensation for the injuries I sustained at the hands of a Government
gone mad.... 33 years ago!
Thank You for publishing my little poem and story,

The following is a letter I sent to the White House on Veterans Day,
Veterans Day, 2002
To Whom It May Concern:
I, James Bradley Stone, as a Project 112 & Project SHAD Veteran, United
States Citizen, and Montana State Voter, do hereby request punitive
action against the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs because
of their blatant disregard for the welfare and their service of the
American people. These Federal Bureaucracies continue to ignore the
lawful oversight of the Congress as well. They must be brought under
control and made to perform according to their lawful charters.
The DoD and VA are purposely blockading the declassification and
reporting of pertinent data that would result in Medical, Compensation &
Pension actions for thousands of veterans. Project SHAD veterans have
waited 30 to 40 years to receive relief for the physical, mental and
sociological damages they have suffered because of their involuntary
participation in wantonly unlawful and carelessly executed ABC Warfare
experiments from 1962 to 1972. There is no excuse for the DoD & VA‚s
overlooking crucial health concerns such as cross-contamination,
non-existent safety equipment and training, and ineffectual
decontamination. They continue to operate under the callous presumption
that because they do not choose to consider these factors, they simply
do not exist. It does not require medical or legal expertise to
determine that to be patently false.
The VA‚s presumption that there are no long-term consequences for SHAD
veterans is a huge lie. The facts and evidence do not support their
statements. Sadly, Project SHAD has already caused severe ailments and
the premature deaths of many veterans and their children. SHAD
survivors and their descendants continue to suffer a multitude of
untreated physical and mental ailments only because it serves the
convenience of the Federal Government. Relieving the consciences of
the agents who have caused these circumstances by authorizing their
ongoing malfeasance is a crime.
If there was no danger from our exposure to highly carcinogenic and
mutagenic Chemical & Biological Warfare Agents, Nuclear Contaminants and
Radiation, then why has the Congress authorized the President to wage
war on other nations that seek to utilize the very same substances? The
notion that we are merely expendable ciphers when our nation is carrying
out an immense international campaign to rid the world of those who
would „gas their own people‰ is ludicrous!
On behalf of all SHAD Veterans, their families, descendants and
survivors, I demand the immediate dismissal and replacement of those who
have flagrantly violated numerous International and United States Laws
by creating and then denying the existence of these programs. By
delaying and distorting the facts regarding Project SHAD & 112, these
agents of the United States prolong serious injury by having used
honorable veterans as Human Test Rats and then denying their claims for
medical attention and monetary compensation.
SHAD Veterans have repeatedly suffered humiliation and degradation at
the hands of VA Administrators, Adjudicators, and Physicians who seek
only to deny and delay their lawful claims on the basis of faulty and
incomplete data from the DoD and improper execution of their duties. No
reasonable party would deny that we have honored our commitment to keep
the secrets of Special Operations and that now we deserve the TRUTH,
RELIEF and COMPENSATION for our involvement in Project SHAD.
Do not delay. Now that the Federal Government is making a weak effort
to document what we have said for decades, the needs of SHAD Veterans
MUST be addressed. Otherwise many more will suffer untimely deaths and
their families will be left with the painful remembrance that their
Country has deserted them.
