Robert O’Dowd served in the 1st, 3rd and 4th Marine Aircraft Wings during 52 months of active duty in the 1960s. While at MCAS El Toro for 2 years, O'Dowd worked and slept in a Radium 226 contaminated work space in Hangar 296 in MWSG-37, the most industrialized and contaminated acreage on the base. O’Dowd and Tim King, former El Toro Marine and war correspondent, teamed together to write the story of the environmental contamination of MCAS El Toro and MCB Camp Lejeune in BETRAYAL: Toxic Exposure of U.S. Marines, Murder and Government Cover-up. BETRAYAL tells the story of the thousands of veterans and their families, once stationed at these hazardous military installations, including the highest incidence of occurrence of male breast cancer in any other demographic in the U.S. at Camp Lejeune, the murder of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow whose death has been tied to use of El Toro’s assets to import South American cocaine into the U.S and to export guns to the Contra Rebel faction of Nicaragua. Demanding courts martial to clear his name of false charges and threatening to blow the whistle on the use of El Toro’s assets to support narcotrafficing, Colonel Sabow was found dead in his quarters by his wife. The circumstances surrounding his death and the forensic evidence from the crime scene support murder by a government assassination team, crime scene tampering and government cover-up at the highest levels, including a ‘doctored autopsy photograph’ submitted in an NCIS report to Congress in 2004. BETRAYAL supports the need for the California Attorney General to require a formal inquest into the death of Colonel Sabow, the correction of the manner of death to homicide, and criminal investigation by the Department of Justice and the appointment of an independent prosecutor to investigate the cover-up by the government of Colonel Sabow’s murder, the murder of other Marines, the conspiracy to commit murder, and narcotrafficing.

A Philadelphia Inquirer story had the local VA Regional Office scrambling to cover their tracks when the paper reported that pictures of Oscar the Grouch in its internal training guide WERE NOT meant to depict veterans.
Camp Pendleton and Camp Lejeune had a lower cancer mortality rate than the US population., but that may change as the veterans get older. Compared to Camp Pendleton, Camp Lejeune had elevated mortality hazard ratios (HRs) for all cancers.

I don’t believe in ghosts. If I ran into one, maybe I’d change my mind. The stories of lights on in the El Toro control tower after the power was cut off decades ago may be just be the product of someone’s wild imagination.
The Navy will label this fiction but if you wanted to hide environmental contamination and avoid expensive remediation from weapons grade U-235, Agent Orange, buried drums of TCE, then the proposed transfer of the 900+ acres of El Toro’s panhandle from the FAA to the FBI makes sense.
