VA Care for Project 112/SHAD Participants

Project 112 is the name of the overall program for both shipboard and land-based biological and chemical testing that was conducted by the United States (U.S.) military between 1962 and 1974. Project SHAD was the shipboard portion of these tests, which were conducted to determine:

  1. The effectiveness of shipboard detection of chemical and biological warfare agents;
  2. The effectiveness of protective measures against these agents; and
  3. The potential risk to American forces posed by these weapons.

VA provides a physical examination to veterans who participated in SHAD. Veterans with conditions recognized by VA as associated with Project SHAD are eligible for enrollment in priority group 6, unless eligible for enrollment in a higher priority. In addition, veterans will receive care at no charge for conditions related to exposure.
