    Hello my Father worked for Rocky Flats for 17 yrs. he passed away at 55 of Clinical term Congestive Heart failure. But he had a Burning Rash for at least the last 10 yrs of his employment at Rocky Flats. He went to Dr. after Dr. Dermatoligist Specialists.. and no one could find a cure for him. . I think he was exposed. and only one Dr. at the Longmont Clinic said it was more than likely he was Exposed to Radiation of some kind. But my Dad started getting to Sick to get any further. tests. His heart gave out. Granted He had heart problems in the past. But the exposure he was infected and exposed. to some kind of chemical scabbing ,Leading to a early Death. for him.
