November 5, 2007: This website is an archive of the former website,, 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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.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, a multimedia blog and resource center.

"This is the way the world ends this is the way the world ends This is

the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper...."


>From T.S. Elliot's "The Hollow Men"






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/ 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,


J.B. Stone, Human Test Rat, Project SHAD, 1969, USS Granville S. Hall




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.
