I don?t know how the system is in USA, but in Norway they don?t use soldiers as Ginny pigs.

Only because you have a uniform doesn?t it mean that they can do as they wish with you.

I hope for the service men and women in the United States armed forces sake that this kind of things happens.

Since I believe we're talking about anthrax and small pox our answer is...

One change in a million of getting a fatal reaction to the vaccines is not nearly as bad as being hit by the disease. Everyone who wasn't vaccinated in Russia for the recently released outbreak (test) died.

Darrel would get the vaccines as would I.
If the kids called home and said "Mom, what should I do?" I'd tell them to get the vaccine.

Bottom line - questionable by who?

How many more times does the military need to used as unwilling guinea pigs before the limits of common sense are breached? Haven't we learned anything from the Agent Orange debacle, and other mass poisonings such as the radiation exposures in the '50's?

No if it is just test labatory situation. Yes, if it is a last ditch, desperate effort to save the life of some young person.

It should be up to whoever is getting the vaccine.

I always believe if the Vaccine is safe for the Commander&Chief it's safe for me GWB took the Small Pox vaccine But! I never seen or heard William J. Clinton stand up and get his Anthrax Vaccine series of inoculations ,I got mine and had no side effects till the last shot in the series and that one left me with a Red welt the size of a coaster on my arm and several millimeters thick that burned and was sore for weeks(it did go away after a few days but others in my unit didn't like the looks of the welt and weren't looking fwd to starting their shots). I was told that was just a typical reaction and to get over it , but today I still have pain and soreness in the shoulder but! Its not considerd a service related injury since it was part of a Vaccination program and the only place its written down is in my shot records .
