Pop some Popcorn all you youngsters, have I got a Tale for you? Yep, sure enough. Right from, Straight from Texas!
A mysterious Briefcase holding a very mysterious Story from over 60 years ago.
Hey youngsters. I have a big bad Bedtime Story to tell a fella, but sadly, it’s not make believe. It’s a story that’s very real and took place long before you may have ever been born. It’s another American Bad Thing We done kind of thing. And no one really talks or teaches about it. But man, Brothers, Sisters, it happened. But in the early 1960s, while you were as snug as bug in a rug, men were checking Soil Samples all across America. Seriously checking all the Soil everywhere. Massive Nukes were being Tested. Yes, this Story is all so very, very True. And makes a fella think for a minute after you read it. Things most have never known. Or ever wanted to know. But there’s no excuse for ignorance.
And in all of this, I’m gonna show real evidence of what I speak. And like all good Whodunnit Detectives, you’re gonna, wanna know how I come about all of this. So, let me begin-
My father was an amazing man. He was the kindest man I ever knew and he could make you laugh like no one I ever knew. And he worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. He was a Soil Scientists. And on many a time, I went and saw Terraces being built for Agriculture Fields for Crop Planting, or Ponds being Built. But always Soil related kinds of things.
Then, when I had just started School, my father once mentioned that he had to go and take Radioactive Readings. I had no idea what he had just said. And the Subject never came up again. And No, we didn’t have any Nuclear Informations like handbooks at out 🏡. Nuclear stuff was never discussed. And here, now it comes-
But all of that changed when I opened a mysterious Leather Briefcase or Satchel you see above in the picture. A 1960s Vintage Leather Case. The kind Spies carried. It still has the Manufacturer’s Card attached. And it’s Manufacturing Brand was on it and a Key that’d never been used. But I was curious and like all of us are with Curiosity. Yes, I Opened it. And it’s Heavy, weighs about 40-lbs. Why so much? Because it’s jammed packed full of stuff. Papers and pictures. But also, Simple things like Pamphlets from 1958 and 1960. And handwritten Meeting Notes. 1958 and 1960? Handwritten Notes on all kinds of Nuclear Stuff. What? So, here, see some of them for yourself to see-
Three Pamphlets we don’t see everyday. Have you? I haven’t. That last one is 32 pages long. And lots of papers like this following one-
And a sample MEMORANDUM for the above named Soil Scientists to attend an upcoming WUC Meeting. WUC Meetings were being held in Stamford, Texas. But what is WUC?
Look at the paragraph on Bottom Right, last sentence. Stay in your Fallout Shelter for a Minimum of 2 WEEKS? And you’re in you’re Home thinking all is gonna be Good. Oh such foolish things they say to make you think all is gonna be well. It won’t be by a hind’s sight.
Among the paperwork, I found Dates of Meetings-
I was going thru the leather Briefcase in Dicks WWII Footlocker. In it, I’m looking over a Treasure Trove of Documents on Radiological Monitoring against a Nuclear Attack. Dates Include Training May 5, 1961, March 11, 1963, and May 29, 1963, March 18, 1963.
Fellow Americans. America had given birth to the most powerful and most Unholy Weapon ever devised-The Atomic 💣! 🇺🇸 Used them Twice already on living Humans.
And the Testing that took place afterwards was as if a New You had been Created and it, like Frankenstein’s Monster, simply HAD to bE Tested! And so, we tested ATOMIC BOMBS like immature, joyful idiots. But man was seeking Answers. What could be done with our New Toy? Kill a fella or Kill Millions? And before I continue, I want to share with you a true story from a son of a man whose father witnessed an Atomic Bomb Blast. He asked that his father and his name remain anonymous. And it’s so important to share these things because you and your kids may be affected by one of these Atomic Weapons in the Future-
My dad watched this one, blow up, when he was involved in atomic testing, when he was in the military. This is Operation Upshot Knothole, Simon. It was detonated on April 25, 1953, at Camp Desert Rock, Nevada. It was much stronger than the bombs dropped on Japan, in WWII.
It was 100 mikes outside of Las Vegas, but it shattered a lot of windows in Casinos, downtown.
My dad contracted cancer, because of his exposure to the radiation. His tongue was removed, his lymph nodes were removed, he was split shoulder to shoulder in the surgery, the bone in his jaw died, he went through six months of radiation treatment, to kill the cancer. He was fed through a tube, that went in to his stomach, for the last 14 years of his life.
That bomb, was over in a few seconds, but it permanently altered his life.
I don’t have a problem with you telling my dads story, if you do it anonymously. My dad has been dead for years, but he was a very private person.
Dad never was compensated. He never sought out, asked for or expected any compensation. Dad never thought about the bomb causing his cancer. When he was diagnosed, and referred to an oncologist, at MD Anderson, that’s when the cause was revealed.
The oncologist said he had been treating oral cancers for 20 years. He said he had read about a tumor like this one, but had never actually seen one,in any of his countless patients. The oncologist said these tumors occur in two types of people. Those in the Appalachian Mountains, that are hillbillies and don’t own a toothbrush. The other type is people that had a one time exposure to a large amount of radiation. That settled it.
Dad’s cancer was diagnosed 43 years after the bomb. No doubt in the mind of the oncologist that the bomb caused it.
The army never forced dad to go watch the bomb. As far as dad knew no one was forced to go. They asked for volunteers.
Dad was 23 years old, in 1953, and jumped at the chance. So did several other guys he knew. The purpose of asking troops to go to the test site was to prove we can survive a nuclear war. They wanted the soldiers to go back home and tell their families and people they knew, that they went through one and lived.
The guys that faired the worst were the pilots, that flew their planes through the mushrooms. Many of them developed cancer and died in the 60’s. The guys that were in trenches, like my dad, did better. Cancers in those guys started showing up, in the late 70’s and the 1980’s. My dad was diagnosed in 1996, so he was among the last ones.
My dad was the only person I’ve ever met, in my life, that witnessed a nuclear bomb detonate. He didn’t talk about it a lot, but there were times he did, when close personal friends and people he respected came over for dinner. Dad would sit at the head of the dining room table and tell the story. The first time I heard it, I was 7 or 8 years old.
I’ll give you the short version. Dad graduated from the University of Texas, with a bachelor’s degree in Finance, in 1953. The Korean War had started. They let him graduate, but he was immediately drafted. He didn’t get to walk across the stage. His diploma was mailed home to his parents.
He went to boot camp, at Ft Leonard Wood, in Missouri. As soon as boot camp was completed, the offer to go to the Nevada Test Site, at Camp Desert Rock was given to those that would like to go. Dad jumped at the opportunity. The dangers and long term effects of radiation exposure were not understood, in the 1950’s.
They boarded a train and it was off to Nevada. They were sent to a class to learn what to expect. They were told they would be in a trench. They told them don’t try to look at the bomb or stick so much as your little finger out of the trench.
The bomb was in top of a tower. A loud speaker was affixed to the tower. Scientists, some 10 miles away, would count down from 10, over the loud speaker, when the bomb was to go off.
Between the tower and the trenches, were pens of goats and sheep. Old, worn out Jeeps, trucks and tanks were also between the bomb and the trenches containing the soldiers. Lastly, the army constructed small houses and a few buildings to simulate a town.
The bomb went off before sunrise, when the scientists counted down from 10. It was still dark. The first thing to happen was boards, debris and sand from the desert floor flew over the trench. Then there was fire that flew over. Dad said even though it was pitch black dark, you could have read a book. Next thing was they heard the sound of the explosion. It’s just like a rifle. The deer is already dead, when the sound reached him.
They remained in the trenches for a bit, then were told they could get up. Dad said, an ice cap formed on top of the mushroom cloud, as the sun came up. All the colors of the rainbow were visible, due to the sun coming through the ice, on the mushroom. Dad described it as “beautiful”.
A leader had a Geiger. Also each soldier had a film badge, made by Kodak, that was designed to change color, when exposed to radiation. When it turned a certain color, it was no longer safe and you should return back the other way.
They approached the pens containing goats and sheep. The side of the animals facing the bomb was burned and charred black. The side away from the bomb was normal. The jeeps were the same way. Many of the jeeps were overturned.
Additionally, there were rabbits and desert animals that were killed. They walked towards ground zero until their equipment said it was no longer safe, and turned around.
They all loaded up in trucks, went back to camp. They were given a few days leave and most went to downtown Las Vegas.
Dad always said, “I have no ill effects from the radiation, to the best of my knowledge”. Of course that all changed in 1996.
Surprisingly, cancer was not the cause of dads death. He was cancer free, when he died. His cause of death was pneumonia, that came about, as a result of the liquid, they went in his feeding tube, backing up in to his lungs. That being said, he never would have had to get a feeding tube, if his tongue had not been removed, because of the tumor in it. So, definitely the effects of the bomb killed him, just indirectly, as opposed to directly.
The oncologist said, vast strides had been made in the treatment of oral cancers, in recent years. He said 15 years before dad’s cancer would have been fatal.
The tongue removal surgery was a little over 12 hours. He was hospitalized for a couple of weeks and sent home. He returned to MD Anderson for radiation treatments, to kill cancer cells that spread to his neck, from his tongue. He described the radiation treatments as worse than the surgery.
He survived 14 years after a stage IV cancer diagnosis. That’s not at all common.
After he was cured of cancer, he had to go back to MD Anderson for a check up, every six months. At the five year mark, the doc said, I am so happy to see you. To be honest with you, I never told you, but I didn’t expect you to survive more than a year or two, when I first saw you.
His speech was severely impacted, without a tongue. He tried speech therapy, but it didn’t help much.
Here’s my take on all of this. Dad had a burning sensation, on the back of his tongue, that he ignored for six months. The pain got unbearable and he couldn’t swallow, because the tumor was blocking his throat. You couldn’t see the tumor, because it was on the back of his tongue. The bottom line is, if you think something is wry with your body, it could be. Go to the doc and get it looked at.
The oncologist said Dad’s tongue would not have had to have been removed, if he had gone to the doctor, when he first felt pain. Cancers and medical problems usually have a much better outcome, when they are addressed early. Never ignore your body. Pain means something is wrong.
And other Dates as well from 1958-1965. But, what is WUC?
WUC stands for the Whiteshell Atomic Research Establishment. It was a nuclear research facility located in Pinawa, Manitoba, Canada. The WUC was established in 1948 by the Canadian government to conduct research on nuclear energy. In the early 1960s, the WUC was training men to take radioactive readings. This was in response to the grow concern about the dangers of radioactive contamination. The WUC’s training program was designed to teach men how to use radiation detectors and how to interpret the readings. The program also covered the health risks associated with radiation exposure and how to protect oneself from these risks. The WUC’s training program was an important step in ensuring the safety of those working in the nuclear industry. It also helped to raise awareness of the dangers of radiation exposure and how to protect oneself from these risks.
The WUC was closed in 2002. However, the site is still being monitored for radioactive contamination. The Canadian government has established a fund to help those who were exposed to radiation while working at the WUC.
And those Training Sessions in Texas?
The Whiteshell Atomic Research Establishment (WUC) held training sessions at Stamford, Texas in the 1960s for Soil Scientists from the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The purpose of these training sessions was to teach Soil Scientists how to use radiation detectors to measure levels of radioactive contamination in soil.
This was in response to the growing concern about the dangers of radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing.
The program was started in the early 1940s in response to the growing concern about the dangers of radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing. The program was designed to collect data on the levels of radioactive contamination in soil across the United States.
The program was very successful in collecting data on radioactive contamination. The data collected by the program helped to raise awareness of the dangers of radioactive fallout and to inform the government’s decisions about how to clean up radioactive contamination.
The program also had some limitations. The program was not able to collect data on all areas of the United States. The program also did not collect data on the long-term health effects of exposure to radioactive contamination.
Despite its limitations, the program was a valuable resource for scientists and policymakers. The data collected by the program helped to improve our understanding of the dangers of radioactive fallout and to inform our efforts to protect the public from exposure to radiation.
The article also highlights the importance of continuing to monitor radioactive contamination. The levels of radioactive contamination in soil can change over time. It is important to continue to monitor radioactive contamination so that we can take steps to protect the public from exposure to radiation.
Here are some things that we can do to continue to monitor radioactive contamination:
- We can support organizations that are working to monitor radioactive contamination.
- We can contact our elected officials and urge them to support funding for radioactive contamination monitoring programs.
- We can live our lives in a way that minimizes our exposure to radiation.
By working together, we can make sure that we are taking steps to protect ourselves from the dangers of radioactive contamination.
NUCLEAR WEAPONS TESTING? Whodunnit?. Where’d they Dunnit? Can you find where you live Today on the following Map?. Soil Samples were Tested everywhere across all of America.
A 20 Kiloton Atomic Bomb will kill a person not sheltered 20 miles away from the center of the Blast! Kill you flatter than a pancake. Crushing you like a foot on a bug.
The nuclear weapons tests of the United States were performed from 1945 to 1992 as part of the nuclear arms race. The United States conducted around 1,054 nuclear tests by official count, including 216 atmospheric, underwater, and space tests.
The training sessions were conducted by WUC scientists and engineers. The Soil Scientists learned how to operate radiation detectors, how to interpret the readings, and how to protect themselves from radiation exposure. The training sessions also covered the health risks associated with radiation exposure and how to protect oneself from these risks.
The training sessions were an important step in ensuring the safety of Soil Scientists who were working in areas that were contaminated with radioactive fallout. They also helped to raise awareness of the dangers of radiation exposure and how to protect oneself from these risks.
The following are some additional details about the training sessions:
- The sessions were held at the Stamford Research Center, which was a facility of the USDA SCS.
- The sessions were conducted over a period of several weeks.
- The sessions were attended by Soil Scientists from all over the United States.
- The sessions were taught by WUC scientists and engineers.
- The sessions covered a wide range of topics related to radiation detection and measurement.
- The sessions also covered the health risks associated with radiation exposure and how to protect oneself from these risks.
The training sessions were a valuable resource for Soil Scientists who were working in areas that were contaminated with radioactive fallout. They helped to ensure the safety of these Soil Scientists and they also helped to raise awareness of the dangers of radiation exposure
Some of the Soil Scientists who attended the training sessions in Stamford, Texas did record radioactive readings. The readings were taken from soil samples that were collected from various locations in the United States. The readings showed that some areas of the United States were contaminated with radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing. The readings also showed that the levels of radioactive contamination varied from location to location.
The readings that were taken by the Soil Scientists were an important piece of evidence that helped to raise awareness of the dangers of radioactive fallout. The readings also helped to inform the government’s decisions about how to clean up radioactive contamination and how to protect the public from exposure to radiation.
The following are some additional details about the radioactive readings that were taken by the Soil Scientists:

- The readings also helped to inform the government’s decisions about how to clean up radioactive contamination and how to protect the public from exposure to radiation.
Places identified where the Soil Scientists found radioactive contamination readings. These places include:
- The Great Plains
The Great Plains were one of the areas that were most heavily contaminated by radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing. The readings showed that the levels of radioactive contamination were highest in the states of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
- The Rocky Mountains
The Rocky Mountains were another area that was heavily contaminated by radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing. The readings showed that the levels of radioactive contamination were highest in the states of Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana.
- The Eastern Seaboard
The Eastern Seaboard was also contaminated by radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing. However, the levels of contamination were much lower than in the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains.
- The Pacific Coast
The Pacific Coast was not as heavily contaminated by radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing as other parts of the United States. However, the readings showed that there was some contamination in the states of California, Oregon, and Washington.
The radioactive contamination that was found in these areas posed a health risk to the people who lived there. The government took steps to clean up the contamination, but some areas are still considered to be radioactive today.
There are a number of areas in the United States that are still considered to be radioactive today. These areas include:
- Hanford Site
The Hanford Site is a former nuclear weapons production facility located in Washington state. The site was used to produce plutonium for nuclear weapons from 1943 to 1989. During this time, large amounts of radioactive waste were generated. The site is still being cleaned up, but some areas are still considered to be radioactive.
- Rocky Flats Plant
The Rocky Flats Plant was a former nuclear weapons production facility located in Colorado. The plant was used to produce plutonium for nuclear weapons from 1952 to 1989. During this time, large amounts of radioactive waste were generated. The plant was closed in 1989 and is now being cleaned up. However, some areas are still considered to be radioactive.
- Savannah River Site
The Savannah River Site is a former nuclear weapons production facility located in South Carolina. The site was used to produce plutonium and tritium for nuclear weapons from 1952 to 1992. During this time, large amounts of radioactive waste were generated. The site is still being cleaned up, but some areas are still considered to be radioactive.
- Nevada Test Site
The Nevada Test Site is a former nuclear weapons testing site located in Nevada. The site was used to test nuclear weapons from 1951 to 1992. During this time, large amounts of radioactive fallout were generated. The site is still being monitored for radioactive contamination.
- Areas near nuclear power plants
Some areas near nuclear power plants are also considered to be radioactive. This is because nuclear power plants generate radioactive waste. The waste is stored on-site or transported to other facilities for disposal. Some areas near nuclear power plants may have higher levels of radioactive contamination than other areas.
It is important to note that the levels of radioactive contamination in these areas are generally very low. However, it is still important to take precautions to avoid exposure to radiation. These precautions include:
- Avoiding contact with contaminated soil or water.
- Eating only locally grown food that has been tested for radioactive contamination.
- Not smoking cigarettes or cigars.
- Limiting exposure to sunlight.
- Getting regular medical checkups.
If you are concerned about radioactive contamination, you should contact your local health department.
The Whiteshell Atomic Research Establishment (WARE) was a research facility located in the province of Manitoba, Canada. It was operated by the federal government’s Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) from the 1950s to the 1990s, and was known as the Whiteshell Laboratories.
The facility was established to conduct research on nuclear energy and technology, and to support the development of Canada’s nuclear industry. It was also involved in research related to nuclear safety and environmental impact.
In the 1980s, the facility was renamed the Whiteshell Nuclear Research Establishment (WNRE) and became part of the Canadian nuclear waste management program. Some of the research conducted at the facility focused on the safe disposal of nuclear waste.
In the 1990s, the facility was closed and the research activities were consolidated into other AECL facilities. The site was then transferred to the government of Canada for environmental remediation and ongoing monitoring.
Today, the former WARE site is managed by theWhiteshell Laboratories and is known as the Whiteshell Research and Development Centre (WRDC). WRDC was originally established as the Whiteshell Nuclear Research Establishment in the 1960s by the Canadian government for the purpose of conducting research and development into nuclear technology, including the development of the CANDU reactor. The site was later renamed in the 1980s to the Whiteshell Atomic Research Establishment (WARE) before being decommissioned and renamed to WRDC.
As part of the decommissioning process, environmental remediation measures were put in place to ensure that any potential risks associated with the previous nuclear research activities were mitigated. This included the removal and safe disposal of radioactive materials, the remediation of contaminated areas, and the restoration of affected ecosystems.
Ongoing monitoring is still carried out at WRDC to ensure that any potential environmental impacts from past activities are detected early and mitigated appropriately. This includes regular monitoring of air, soil, and water quality, as well as ongoing samplingThe Whiteshell Atomic Research Establishment, also known as WUC, was a Canadian nuclear research facility located in the Whiteshell Provincial Park in Manitoba, Canada. WUC began its operations in the late 1950s and was decommissioned in 1995.
The facility was primarily used for research on nuclear energy and power generation. Among WUC’s achievements were the development of the CANDU nuclear reactor, which has been used in several countries for power generation, as well as research on the safety and environmental impact of nuclear energy.
As part of its operations, WUC also conducted regular monitoring of air, soil, and water quality both inside and outside the facility as part of its commitment to environmental safety. This ongoing sampling ensured that any potential environmental impacts of the research activity were identified and addressed in a timely manner.
Today, the site of the former WUC facility is managed by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited and the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories. The site is being decommissioned and monitored for anyWhiteshell Atomic Research Establishment (WUC) was a nuclear research facility located in Manitoba, Canada. The facility was established in the 1960s and was operated by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) until 1998, when it was privatized and acquired by the private sector company, Whiteshell Laboratories (WL). The facility was used for various nuclear research and development activities over the years, including the production of medical isotopes, nuclear fuel development, and reactor safety research.
In 2014, WL announced that it would be ceasing operations at the site and transferring ownership to the Canadian government. The Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), a subsidiary of AECL, was tasked with decommissioning the site and returning the land to its natural state. Decommissioning involves the removal of all nuclear materials and decontamination of the area to ensure it is safe for human use.
CNL is now responsible for the management of the WUC site as well as other nuclear facilities in Canada.
The Whiteshell Atomic Research Establishment (W.A.R.E.) was a research facility owned by the Canadian government that was located in the Whiteshell Provincial Park in Manitoba, Canada. The facility was established in 1954, during the early years of the Cold War, and was primarily focused on conducting research related to nuclear energy and weapons. In 1971, W.A.R.E. was renamed to the Whiteshell Nuclear Research Establishment (W.N.R.E.) to better reflect the shift towards nuclear power research and development. However, in 1985, the facility was decommissioned and ceased all research activities. The Whiteshell Underground Laboratory (W.U.L.), which was established in the decommissioned facility in 1987, continued research in areas such as nuclear physics and geophysical studies. In 2006, the facility was renamed to the Whiteshell Laboratories. In 2015, the responsibility for managing the Whiteshell Laboratories and other nuclear facilities in Canada was transferred from Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) to Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL). The Whiteshell Atomic Research Establishment (WUC) is one of the nuclear facilities managed by CNL. The WUC was established in the 1950s by AECL to perform research and development related to nuclear energy. It is located in Pinawa, Manitoba, Canada and covers an area of approximately 39 square kilometers.
The main activities performed at the WUC included:
And now, you know more than you did before. There are Nuclear Weapons so powerful now that they will Kill a Fella 300 Miles from the Center of the Blast. 300 Miles! So, please forget all about jumping in you Car and out running a Nuclear Weapons Blast like out running a Tornado.
You Won’t make it! Deader than all DEAD ITSELF!
So, when the men in Black come by telling you all things are cool and you’ll live when the Bomb Hits. BULL CORN! You’ll be Deader than DEATH ITSELF!
But ask yourself this? Soldiers were compensated for AGENT ORANGE!
BUT They WEREN’T when they hid in trenches or stood on Ships as ATOMIC BOMBS or also, were aboard Planes while these Atomic Bombs were Detonated in their vicinity. Now, why is that? They wanted to see what these Atomic Bombs did. To animals and Humans. I think all who have suffered because of Atomic Bomb Testing should be PAID! Or their Families. Or will this Subject Remain Taboo to discuss? What took place needs to be taught in Schools for all Generations to know.
To build more Atomic Bombs or build larger Delivery Systems is as Unholy as it’ll ever get. Only a person Insane with Insane Ideologies would exercise them in Speeches and possible USE THEM in our Modern Times. .
My God, please never allow these Atomic Bombs to be used ever again!
