Draft of DU action proposal

Below is a draft of an action proposal on the DU issue.  Please give feedback. Mahalo.
An Action Proposal on the confirmation of Depleted uranium (DU) presence at Schofield Barracks, Pokahuloa Training Area (PTA), and perhaps at other military ranges in Hawaii.
1.  Immediate halt to all live-fire at Schofield Barracks, Pohakuloa and other military ranges in Hawaii until there is a complete assessment and clean up of the DU present.
2.  Citizen monitors, including Dr. Lorrin Pang MD, attorney and former nuclear worker Clarence Ku Ching, and Jim Albertini or some other representative from the peace movement to be involved in the DU assessment and monitoring process to assure transparency and community confidence.
3.  The establishment of permanent, continuous, high tech counts per minute (cpm) monitors (at the Army's expense) but independently operated around range impact area where the real-time data is available to the public on line. 
4.  Testing (at Army expense) for DU exposure of PTA and other military personnel, and members of the civilian community who feel they may have been exposed to DU.  (The U.S. is spending $2 billion a day on the military.  There should be funds available to see if citizens are being contaminated by its own radioactive weapons.)
5.  Ongoing public balanced informational and Q & A meetings involving the Army, State Dept. of Health, Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Dr. Lorrin Pang and other community resource people.
