I was on Lojwa from Feb. 78 through August of 78. I lived inside the Commo Bunker near the outdoor theater All my info was on my travel orders. You can get your proof at the local VA office. You can get it through the DOD, The Dept. Of Energy, and you can request changes to your DD-214 to include your service on the rock and add exposure to radiation also. Good Luck, and let me know if you can get anywhere with that. If not, We will figure out something among the group. Gary Pulis is a wealth of information.
