Old soldier accepts one last mission Mike Connell Port Huron Times Herald January 22, 2012CLAY TWP. -- Steve House didn't intend to go to war with the U.S. Army, but the way he sees it, he wasn't given a choice.
"They poked a wounded bear," he says.House, 55, who lives near Algonac, contends the Army disposed of Agent Orange, Agent Blue, Urox 22, Lindane and other very, very nasty chemicals in a toxic dump at Camp Carroll in South Korea.
How does he know this? In the summer of 1978, as a heavy equipment operator with the 802nd Engineer Battalion, he says he buried hundreds of chemical drums in a ditch the size of a city block.
...THE PENTAGON says it spent $3 million to $4 million last year to investigate the claims. It also says it could find no evidence of toxic chemicals at the location pinpointed by House.
