I just wanted to let you know that our press conference was a huge success!! We had over 10 news stations and reporters attend. The media is definitely on our side! Below are some of the points we brought up.

I want to remind you that tonight is the 2nd health department meeting with Dr. Brookmyer at 6:30pm at Winchester Hall 12 East Church Street Frederick, MD 21701 301-600-9000. It's very important for us to attend these meetings to share our questions and concerns.

I also want to let you know that we now have a MAJOR MOTION picture company who is in support of our story... the possibility of a documentary is very likely.

Lastly, since the army has refused our help in locating where Fort Detrick buried/burned stuff on and off post, we have organized a fence line tour to point out locations of concern and discuss past army practices on Area B with USEPA and MDE. This tour will start at 2pm Sept. 2nd at 5616 Shookstown Road.
