It has been around for a while now but those of us on the list ( you have to sign up) get updates and that is what I passed. If he did not get on the list he should. Waugh!

Was at Stone Bay and Main Side in 70-71. When I submitted my paperwork to the VA in Coatsville a few years ago there was a specific section that was focused on if the veteran was stationed there.

Drank plenty of water there but never noticed any odd taste or odors. I mean, if you could stomach the chow from the chow halls then the water was never an issue.
