(FOX News) -- Sue Frasier spent the first six months of her military career at Alabama’s Fort McClellan. But that short stint — 44 years ago at an Army base the EPA later would find so toxic it would shut it down — was all it took for her to start getting sick, she says.
Her problems began shortly after completing boot camp in 1970 at the Anniston, Ala., base. Today, she says she’s coping with asthma, a life-threatening gastrointestinal disease that required surgery, and fibromyalgia that results in long-term pain and tenderness in her joints and muscles.
“It hurts everywhere, but at least I can still walk and talk,” she told FoxNews.com.
