Just aired tonight on Australian Channel 10 News is a breaking story of Australian soldier Kevin Dillon who died in his late 20’s from cancer. The story did not elaborate on what type of cancer but his family believes it was caused by the high power electronic counter measures (ECM) backpack that he carried on patrol in Afghanistan.The AMA and Rear Admiral Robyn Walker has publicly indicated they are willing to look into this.
These ECM backpacks are now an essential part of the “kit” carried by soldiers in the battlefield.
An important case but watch the spin merchants try to cover this one up. Like what they did with the unfortunate civilian workers who were zapped doing a radar upgrade of the PC3 Hawker de Haviland Orions at the RAAF base in South Australia in the late 1990’s. But that’s another story…..
