    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.

    Part E under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act it states it covers Department of Energy contractor or subcontractor workers for occupationally induced illnesses caused by toxic substances.

    My father worked for Rocky Flats/Kaiser hill in Golden and suffers lots of neurological issues, had a stroke (unknown cause), constantly suffers from headaches and is always dizzy. I believe it’s from toxic exposure. In fact he literally become exposed where they had to strip him naked, quarantined him and then scrubbed him down . Would he qualify for benefits?

    I am looking for anyone that knew Harold “Whitey” Watkins in the late 1950’s and 1960’s. He died of pancreatic cancer in 1978. He also had a strange rash on his leg that none of the doctors could figure out how to treat. The worst thing was in 1961 or 62 when he was welding in one of the silo’s and had a blast of steam hit him and another welder. They both lost ALL hair that never came back. All exposed hair was on head, eyebrows, eyelashes, nose hair even the V in his t-shirt. The next was when a very large concrete door on one of silos slammed shut on a metal door being welded killing several workers. All of this is being denied..

    I worked there in the early 90’s for 3 years in the building services department working in buildings 123, 881, windsite, waste plant, and other buildings that I cleaned.
    My father worked there for 32 years and is being diagnosed with Beryllium disease and sorcoidosis. I don’t know if it applies to me or not but I am interested to find out.

    I worked in building 881 for data entry and documentation, and in multiple buildings with building services like 122, 123, waste treatment plant, and others for about 3 years.
