DNA Historical Volumes--Atmospheric Nuclear Tests


These test volumes are politically forced publications and are a "sanitized" historical rendition of occurrances and planning operations. The particular disagreements that participants have with these reports are; the claims of concern and precautionary measures taken to protect participants, stated distances from drop zone, the stated prevalence of badging and the reports of minimal or no radiation exposure. Note the reoccurring expression of uncertainties regarding methods for determining levels of exposure. However, these reports, along with the released test videos, do give us a very limited glimpse of what happened at the various nuclear tests. The reports do list participating units, though there may be some inaccuracies, particulary in the ommission of some units. You will not find individual names listed.

These volumes are available from your local library, state historical societies, university libraries or VA offices. It may take a few weeks for your library to find and get them for you.

The cover info includes "The DNA number", "Test Series or Test Name" and "United States Atmospheric Nuclear Weapons Test Personnel Review--Prepared by the Defense Nuclear Agency as Executive Agency for the Department of Defense"

If you feel rich, the reports can be purchased through: National Technical Information Services (NTIS), 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, Virginia 22161 -- Phone: (703) 487-4650.
