Background: The Army admits to using Depleted Uranium (DU) at Schofield Barracks on Oahu and the Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) in the center of Hawaii Island. How many radioactive rounds have been fired is not clear. Hundreds at a minimum, perhaps thousands.
Although the Army has previously denied any adverse health effects related to DU, the Army now says that “Depleted Uranium particles can be ingested from the soil or inhaled by airborne dust that may cause adverse health effects.”
