The Signs Were There
By Alexander MacGilivary
Alec is a singer/songwriter with ties to Timothy and Kim Brooks. He wrote and performed the song for us and donated it to the Stronghold Freedom Foundation as a gift.
We worked for several months to gather pictures of our veterans posing with the warning signs that were found around the base, as well as other "signs" that there were toxic exposures right near the surface. We also included pictures of just a few of those that we have lost, as well as a list of those that have been reported to us. The video was created by our Executive Director Sarah Puerner with creative input from our volunteers and staff.
The DoD has reported that 15,777(+) US Servicemembers were stationed at the base. Even more, flew through and there were also Federal Employees and Civilian Contractors that were present. Stronghold Freedom Foundation has only located about a third of them. We hope that this amazing song will tell the story about the base and our continued fight for recognition.
