The last drops of 1,269 tons of a deadly nerve agent were destroyed at the Newport Chemical Agent Disposal Facility Aug. 8. This is a signal achievement for the workers at Newport, the community and our national security.
Plans for destroying VX gas (which contracts of all the muscles in the body, including the diaphragm, causing death by asphyxiation) at Newport began more than 20 years ago. Throughout the years, I supported the Army funds for research and development of the best and safest way to get rid of the VX.
