Big Island DU contamination before the NRC on May 30th

See request of Dept. of health and NRC below!
This is a very simple and accurate request and it could prove to be a very effective request!
Please help us Gary. We are only asking the Army leaders to do what they are required to do but actions that they have ignored to maintain proponencv for du munitions while avoiding all liability as specified in the march 1991 los alamos menmorandum.

I have attached united states  army regulation 40-5 that also governs their actions.
thank you,

To Gary Gill
Deputy Director Hawaii  Dept. of Health

Aloha Gary,
Over the past several years, has the DOH ever participated in any of the
meetings where Hawaii citizens have challenged the Army and NRC on DU?
Has the DOH ever even listened in?  I have never heard a comment by the
DOH in any of the meetings and I have been involved extensively.
Will you or someone in the DOH be joining the meeting on May 30th to
speak out for the public health of Hawaii citizen concerns this time?
If not, why not?  According to Dr. Rokke, who wrote the regulation,
according to Army regulation 700-48, the Army is required to follow
local government’s requests.  The Army has not followed Hawaii County
Council Resolution 639-08.  Please ask the Army and the NRC to follow
the 8 actions requested in that resolution including stopping all
live-fire at Pohakuloa.

The Davy Crockett is one DU weapon confirmed used at Pohakuloa. There
are many other DU weapons that may have been used.  We will not know the
full extent of the DU contamination until comprehensive testing and
monitoring is done.
