My last name is DeMarre and i served on the Fox from 1976-1977. During that time we had to follow a russian ship back to its waters. Our Captain wanted to get a better look for picture taking so we got within about 50 yards from them. They went to GQ and trained there missles on us. My doctor asked me how I came in contact with ionizing radiation. This is the only way I could think of. Has anyone else had a probllem with there thyroid gland?

radars do not emit ionizing radiation. common sources are x-rays and nuclear.
