Clipped From Ukiah Daily Journal
- On March 30,1982, high winds brought death to six paratroopers and injury to 150 others during an exercise at Fort Irwin, Calif. Testimony given to the inspector-general charged that the brass knew the winds were dangerously strong. When I reported the charges last year, I Was assured that they were being taken seriously by the IG's office. Internal documents show that my evidence was forwarded to the inspector- general. Yet a safety official who later asked f6r a copy of the IG's follow-up report was told: "There is none."
