Moody Air Force Base is a United States Air Force facility located near Valdosta, Georgia. It was built in 1941 as Moody Field. Because military personnel had to use aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, during their training, serious contamination with PFAS occurred in the water system of the base.
Thereby, veterans and their family members who were stationed at Moody Air Force Base for at least 1 cumulative year after 1970 and came to struggle with a terrible disease are entitled to compensation.
In 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency found 375,000 parts per trillion of PFAS in the drinking water on the base. This is considerably over the permissible limit. As a consequence, everyone who spent time at Moody Air Force Base drank tainted water, which now places veterans and their family members at high risk of developing a serious disease. If you are a veteran or a family member of one who was stationed at Moody Air Force Base for at least 1 cumulative year and subsequently developed a disease, you may be eligible for compensation, depending primarily on your diagnosis.
As a group of hazardous chemicals, PFAS are present in AFFF, which was used in large amounts on Moody Air Force Base, particularly during the training of new military members. Because PFAS are “forever chemicals”, they persist in the environment for a very long time after they are released. They can easily infiltrate the water and the soil and may also be present in the air. The following are the diseases you can develop after drinking water contaminated with PFAS, as well as the diagnoses that make you eligible for filing a claim for compensation:
If you notice a new onset of symptoms, regardless of how much distress they are causing you in your daily life, please seek medical attention as soon as possible, as a disease may have developed in your body as a result of PFAS exposure.
