Troops At Iraqi Nuclear Site Not Exposed To High Radiation

FORT CAMPBELL, KY (AP) -- An Army medical expert says he thinks soldiers who were stationed at an Iraqi nuclear facility in Iraq are safe.

Colonel Mark Melanson from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center spoke at a meeting yesterday at Fort Campbell.

Melanson says more than 750 soldiers were tested for exposure since 2003.

Members of the 101st Airborne Division were among soldiers who served at the Tuwaitha nuclear complex.
