VOL. 2/ISSUE 9 FRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 201435 cents My story is my scars, and the government doesnt pay for scarsEditors note: Veteran Voice will have additional stories abou t Silverio Sal Conti. The Depart ment of Veterans Affairs is aware that this story is running and is researching information about its experiences with and policies regarding veterans who served at Dugway Proving Grounds, Utah, in the middle 1950s. Silverio Sal Conti was in his early 20s when he showed up at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah, a facility where chemical and biological weapons testing was conducted in the 1950s. That was in March 1955. Conti wasnt particularly idealistic, or cynical. He was just a New York City boy there to cook his way through an Army draft enlistment as he looked forward to heading back home. Today, at age 79, he sounds downright cynical and angry at the government. The more his story unfolds, the easier it is to understand why. Conti said that if he knew hed walked off Dugway with the life he has, hed have refused to step foot on the post. I told John (Haddox), Those sons of (expletive) should have told us, he said. They should have told us that these things coming out of our bodies were not natural. Haddox was a county veterans 1999 to 2012. Thats how he met Conti and learned about his sto and more of both to the Depart ment of Veterans Affairs for Con ti. They all hit brick walls. Conti said he gets nothing from the VA. Nothing. Not medical care. Nothing. Especially, Con ti said, he doesnt get answers. Not from the VA or anyone else. run for and serve on the Martin County Commission, but he keeps up on Contis case.

Veteran Voice is a weekly publication designed to provide information to and about veterans to veterans and to the broader community. Veterans are an integral part of their Florida communities, which currently have individual organizations of their own, such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, the Vietnam Veterans of America and many other groups with a narrow focus, but no convenient way to connect to a wider population of veterans and to the community in general within a limited geographic area, their community. The mission of Veteran Voice is to publish a weekly source of information that will provide, in one place, a listing of resources available to veterans, articles about changes in policies or organizations affecting veterans and events of interest to veterans as well as articles about veterans of interest to the general public. Veteran Voice LLC is organized as a partnership of experienced newspaper executives with an interest in veterans and in the communities of Florida veterans and friends. Veteran Voice is a start-up intended to address a perceived lack of information readily available to veterans on programs and policies affecting them and objective reporting of veteran affairs to the public. To our knowledge, and based on comments from lead ers of local veterans organizations, there was no media or website currently meeting this need until the launch of Veteran Voice. We hope you agree, and will support this publica tion with your subscription. Without subscriptions there will be a limited number of people we can help, without which this mission will not be realized. As part of our commitment to supporting local veteran communities, readers and subscribers.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE JANUARY 3, 2014 3Draw a bead on the third Viet nam Veterans Sporting Clays Fun Shoot. Itll be on March 1, at South Florida Shooting Club, 500 S.W. Long Drive, Palm City. Among other things, proceeds will help the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1041 give three Martin County High School Ju nior ROTC students scholarships. Monies raised will also help local veterans with needs ranging from food to car repairs, along with We raised, netted, $15, 000 for the shoot last year, George Tidikis, chapter treasurer, said. a military divers helmet. One of our members was an Army diver. that off, we raised $2,500. We were able to give (Martin County visor) Tony Reese a check for $17,500. Last year the Vietnam Veterans of Americas Chapter 1041 had an idea. What if the Martin supervisor, Reese, had a pot of money to help cash-strapped and appeals to the Department of Veterans Affairs. But, a few times a month he gets veterans who need things the VA doesnt offer. Used to be that Reese would pull out his Rolodex and start calling veterans organizations for donations to those folks. The guys at VVA 1041 just didnt like the thought of hungry veterans waiting for Reese to get a hold of people for help. So, they told him about their idea: a rapid-response fund that he could tap immedi ately. Reese thought the upstart chapter meant $500, $1,000. After all, it had maybe 70 some members, right? He said getting a $17,500 rapid-response account bowled him over. It makes my job 10 times easi er, he said. I dont have to think how to get (a veteran in need) help. I can focus on what help (he or she) needs. In November, only one veteran tapped the rapid-response fund. By the end of that month, the fund had $12,346.40. In December, we (helped) six guys, Reese said. It varied from rent and gas money to auto repairs. Those six veterans got a combined $1,900 from the rapid-response fund. The now 78-members chapter gave three Junior ROTC students $1,000 each back in May. It aims to give scholarships to three more this school year. The chapter is also helping veterans hunting for work with Veteran Connection, a job-seeking assistance program.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE JANUARY 3, 2014 5Martin vet played tennis with legends(Second of two parts)In 1931, Joseph Verner Reed and his wife, Permelia Pryor Reed, founded the Jupiter Island Club. The tennis courts at the select club were a popular place for visiting celebrities to let off steam. One of their sons, Nathan iel Reed, is still active in local and statewide environmental issues. Bill Oughterson was a young man, still in high school, when he began playing there. Joseph and dad became good friends, Oughterson said. When people came down who were not real tennis players, they called us. The younger Oughterson, who played tennis at Stuart High School, would go on to captain the University of Florida ten nis team in 1949 and become a professional tennis umpire. More about that later. Last week, I wrote about Bill Oughtersons professional and private accomplishments. For the second part of the series, he opened up about two legends whose paths he crossed in very different ways. Oughterson and his father, T.T., went to the Jupiter Island Club to play tennis with a pretty fair am ateur player, Katharine Hepburn. He played her twice and one time, she brought her sister, Peg, for doubles. Kate and Bill had 6 and Dad and Sis had 4, Oughterson recalled. She and I beat my father and her sister. Oughterson, still a teen, was a little star-struck about being with Hepburn, and he left his auto graph book behind. Soon after, he and the rest of the high school were at an assembly. Somebody came to the door, Oughterson said. I was in the front row as a senior. They said, Billy, a lady wants to see you. I opened the door. Everybody recognized her. She handed me my book and I apologized profusely. She was just fun. I was very im pressed. She was a friendly and normal lady. The young mans status in school jumped quite a bit after that episode. Oughtersons activities as an umpire garnered him some national notoriety. At a match in South Florida, he was umpiring when Chris Evert was playing. He called a foot fault on her at an important point. She pursed her lips, Oughterson said. Her parents were seated above and behind me and I knew them, although not well. They smiled. It was Bud Collins, dean of the tennis commentators, who had the last word. I called a foot fault on Chris Evert and Bud Collins looked up my name and said, Hes from Florida. Doesnt he know you dont call a foot fault on Chris Evert in Florida? Oughterson said he got several calls from, people he knew aroused the country who heard the broadcast. Oughterson also played with for mer heavy weight champion Gene Tunney and Lieutenant General Leslie Groves, who oversaw the Manhattan Project that developed the bomb during World War II. It was heady stuff, but Oughter son remains humble about his accomplishments and acquaintances. Many who know him are unaware of them. He will talk about them when asked, but he is not trying to impress. He has no need for that. Today, when you call Bill Ough terson, his wife, Leila, is likely to tell you hes out doing his exer cises. He is living his life as he al ways has, and its a life well-lived. It has been my privilege to get to know him, if only a little bit. Shelley Koppel is a staff writer for Your Voice News & Views. 8127Offer expires 1/31/2014 #VV112013Season Special

8 JANUARY 3, 2014 VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE prone to hyperbole or emotional outbursts. Worst case ever Ive worked on, he said. The saddest one. Its total (expletive) for the veteran. Thats today. Lets go back to the start of Contis tale. Dugway. When he walked into Haddoxs hed served until 1956. Haddox had 20 years in the Navy and a werent many new base names for him to hear. I told him Id never heard of the place, Haddox said. I asked him, What is Dugway? Put simply, Dugway is the kind of place that crops up in spy nov els and movies about man-made apocalypses. The base is still around. Even has a website. They were doing all kinds of tests, Conti said. They never told us what they were testing. As his stateside deployment rolled on, Conti got a growing unease about where he was. The cook was up early in the morn ings and saw things. He saw worrisome things. Id go to throw out food in the morning, and Id see dead animals with lumps, he said. Hors es, big horses, dead with lumps. Then, he started getting those same lumps. I said, What are all these lumps on my body? Conti said. They said dont worry about it. They said, Dont worry about it; well take care of it. Military doctors removed those lumps, but took Conti off cooking duty. He became a clerk until his deployment ended. Those lumps kept growing while Conti was at Dugway, and after he left. Ive had 50, 60 surgeries to remove all these lumps on my body, he said. Then in the late s, early s, Conti had a tumor tree growing at the base of his spine. Sur geons removed it. The largest part weighed in at 5 pounds. Later he developed mouth cancer. Ive been trying to get some recognition of something that happened to me out there, Conti said. I told John (Haddox), Ive never smoked a cigarette in my life, so it seems not right that I have cancer in my palate. Lumps. Tumors. Cancer. All of it starting at Dugway, Conti said. It started when he was in the service, Haddox said. (A claim) should have been a slam dunk. But, its wasnt. There are a cou ple reasons for that, Haddox and Conti said. One is the secrecy that surrounds Dugway. (The VA) wanted him to tell them what chemicals he was exposed to, Haddox said. He doesnt know that. This stuff was secret. The other problem is the 1973 Records Center, St. Louis. The of service records including Contis Army medical records that he says would show his lumps started at Dugway. I said, Where is my record of that? he said. No one can give me a record of that. They say all my records burned in the St. Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer CONTI from page 1 See CONTI page 9 rfnf f rfntbrnttrttrbfb rttbfnnttb rttrntrfnrtbbrttrbfn t 7865-gcs-port-st-lucie-new-yrs-ad-st-lucie-county-your-news-2014-9.75x6.3-v1.indd 1 12/30/13 8:38 AM 8110

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE JANUARY 3, 2014 9 Without records, the Hobe Sound man doesnt have much left for making claims, or seeking answers. My story is my scars, and the government doesnt pay for scars, Conti said. Thats what someone told me: Mr. Conti, the VA does not pay for scars. CONTI from page 8 project with the United Way of Martin County. Veteran Connection included a series of employment-hunting and career-development classes that culminated in an October job fair at Indian River State Colleges Chastain Campus, Stuart. We had 38 employers with 80 job openings, Tidikis said. Un fortunately, we had 40 veterans show up. We went back to the drawing board: OK, where did we go wrong promoting it. Therell be another Veteran Connection job fair at the campus in April. All the chapters activity gets a bunch of attention around Florida. Ben Humphries state pres ident, VVA Florida State Council said all of the states 27 chap ters are wonderful, but theres something about the Martin boys. They are a brand-new chapter, but they hit the ground running, he said. Theyve been very involved in the community and always looking for a way to help veterans in need. According to the Florida De partment of Veterans Affairs, there are about 500,000 Vietnam veterans in the Sunshine State. They make up almost a third of the states veterans population. Martin County has about 14,700 veterans. It likely has almost 5,000 Vietnam-era veterans. George Mittler, 1041s presi dent, said that with fundraising success proving outreach tactics, VVA 1041 is turning more of its attention to getting those veter ans signed up. We try to dig them up out of the woodwork, he said. Membership is open to all veter ans who served in Vietnam from February 1961 to May 1975, and all veterans who served from Au gust 1964 to May 1975.
