Talk Nation Radio: Lisa McCrea on How Military Bases Are Poisoning Us

Lisa McCrea is an environmental and human rights activist, and the mother of five. She lived on the former George Air Force Base in California from 1987 to 1991. She found out 30 years after first stepping foot on the base that it was and is extremely contaminated with numerous toxic substances, including nuclear waste. She became partially disabled in 1990 and completely disabled in 2003, at the age of 35, as a direct result of her contamination exposure. In 2017, she switched her focus from corporate contamination to military contamination. Already a veterans’ advocate, she found out about the George AFB contamination through a veteran from Camp Lejeune, NC. Since 2017, she has been fighting for governmental and Department of Defense accountability and justice for all affected by military contamination.
