The New Home Company Gasses Veterans.

Getting back to the large water tank used to fill up the many water trucks on the construction site that was just a few feet away MV’s home. The water tank was situated in such away that each diesel truck would pull up right next to MV’s house and sit there for 20-30 minutes at a time to fill up. And then another truck which was waiting right behind, and next to MV’s home would move up to be filled. This was repeated over and over for 10 to 12 hours a day with all the trucks idling and discharging toxic fumes.

     And if you don’t know, diesel fumes contain toxic particles that are directly linked to cancer. With all the windows closed the house would still fill with the deadly fumes. After the first couple of days MV and his wife began to feel extremely ill and had difficulty with their breathing, thinking and memory.

MV, at that time didn’t know the name of the company so the senior while extremely ill from the fumes had to (he couldn’t drive because of his condition) had to walk all the way around to get into the entrance of the construction site. He thought if he could find somebody in charge they would immediately take care of the deadly situation. What he found was hard to believe.
