identify the sailors who participated in the NRL tests. However, it will require substantial manual work.
If the total number of Army veterans who participated in the test conducted by the Chemical Warfare Service is "1002" as stated in the historical military documents, over half of them have been identified with their full names and service numbers.
Further efforts are needed to locate the military records of the Army units that participated in the tests and to identify individuals who actually volunteered for the tests.
At least 12 Army units have been identified as having been involved with the tests.
