In this episode, Weekend Wrap-up host, Kevin Ferrara talks about a Congressional hearing on PFAS that was postponed twice and his opportunity to testify removed.
Kevin reads for listeners and viewers, what was supposed to be his opening statements that highlight how the DoD and Air Force continue to pushback on the fact PFAS does have a significant impact on US military servicemembers.
In addition to reciting his testimony, Kevin highlights the DoDs PFAS blood test for active military and DoD civilian firefighters and how the DoD seemingly does not have a plan to deal with elevated levels of PFAS in servicemembers.
Kevin highlights how the DoD continues to release AFFF into the environment, sometimes off the military installation within civilian communities.
