Navy responds promptly about Nomans

The Navy recently answered questions first posed by The Times at a Sept. 29 hearing on Nomans Land. Those questions went unanswered at the time. Initially a Navy official said the questions would not be answered until the Navy has issued a determination on what degree of munitions cleanup, if any, it will do on Nomans Land. The Navy has cleared thousands of munitions from the island, which was a target range for decades. 

David Barney, a Navy official, answered the questions through an email sent by a naval spokesman. 

 The first set of questions posed by The Times were, “Were cluster munitions dropped on the island? Was depleted uranium ammunition fired on the island? Was napalm dropped on the island?”
