Camp Sibert
US Army
Chemical Warfare School

Camp Sibert in Alabama was the site of the Army's Chemical Warfare School during World War II.

Gerald Cheves on Camp Sibert: American chemical warfare experiments on blacks during WWII 11/15/01

Are you familiar with the U.S. Chemical Warfare Testing program of WWII? My father was a member of the all-black unit of mostly illiterate and poor blacks, who were forced to participate in experimentation over their lifetimes, and were never compensated for the consequent disabilities nor given adequate medical treatment. In fact, most were declared paranoid schizophrenic and were given mind-numbing electro-shock therapy to erase the memory, which is one of the known effects. Incidentally, electro-shock therapy was never an approved treatment for schizophrenia. An excellent reference is the book, "Veterans at Risk: The Health Effects of Mustard Gas and Lewisite."

The VA released this fact sheet after we mounted an unsuccessful court challenge to their denial of due process to a veteran (my father) who was never given 100% disability rating, which would have entitled us to financial and economic support nor included in the Victims Compensation Bill to compensate Veterans for the horrendous effects suffered after repeated exposure to mustard gas and lewisite.

A riot in March of 1944 resulted in the deaths of thirty to fifty Black recruits, their remains hidden in a cave. When the bones are discovered thirty years later, it is once again covered up. Read the amazing TRUE story SHUNNED by the Department of Defense, Senators and Congressmen, The National Enquirer, CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, and many Major newspapers. This is the story of men who died, and were stolen from history. See Twilight Distribution

Camp Sibert in a listing of US Camps used to house German POWs. Note: there was another Camp Sibert in Germany, renamed Camp King, and it had nothing to do with the School in Alabama.
