A Florida woman who has battled federal agencies over their denials of compensation claims for sick Cold War workers who were exposed to toxic substances has gone to bat for a former Area 51 worker from Las Vegas.
Donna Hand of Tampa said the Labor Department should reopen Fred Dunham’s claim and those of about 50 other workers at Area 51, the once-secret U.S. Air Force test installation 90 miles north of Las Vegas.
Dunham worked as a security guard at Area 51 in the 1980s. The installation where the Air Force secretly tested high-tech military aircraft generated a mystique among UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists. It also played big parts in several popular science fiction movies, including “Independence Day,” which came out in 1996, and “Paul” in 2011.
Hand, a workers advocate and authorized representative for Dunham, 64, said the Labor Department wrongly relied on a Department of Energy contractor employee’s opinion “not based on any material facts” that Dunham’s employer, EG&G Special Projects, was a Defense Department subcontractor not covered by the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Act.

The first successful weather satellite, TIROS-1, was launched in 1960. The images, though a bit blurry, picked up a typhoon 1,000 miles east of Australia. This satellite only lasted 78 days in orbit but it showed the benefits of space observations, ushering in an era of much more accurate weather information that has helped save lives and protect livelihoods.
