U.S. NAVY ARMED GUARD CENTER, W.W.2, TREASURE ISLAND,
"Looking for anyone who may have had the same experience that
I had with a GAS CHAMBER on 20 June 1944 while in transit
between the S.S. CAPE CANSO and the S.S. JAMES J. O'KELLEY
at Treasure Island, San Francisco, California.
"We were at General Quarters when we were told to remove our
clothes and to put on clothes and a gas mask furnished by the
U.S. Navy and not to remove anything until we were told to do
so. After going through the gas chamber we were told to take
the mask and clothes off and to take a shower.
"On 21 June 1944 I reported aboard the S.S. James J. O'Kelley
and three days later was afflicted with blisters all over my
neck and shoulders.
"I now believe that I went through the gas chamber as part of
a MUSTARD GAS EXPERIMENT OF PROTECTIVE CLOTHING. I will
appreciate any help that I may get to help me prove that these
experiments did happen.
