Comrades in Arms:

This information concerning MELIOIDOSIS, from the web site of the Centers for Disease Control, is of particular interest to military veterans who served in the old Republic of Viet Nam, "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away - - - ".


Melioidosis, also called Whitmore's disease, is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei that may infect humans or animals. Melioidosis is predominately a disease of tropical climates, especially in Southeast Asia and northern Australia where it is endemic. The bacteria causing melioidosis are found in contaminated water and soil and are spread to humans and animals through direct contact with the contaminated source.


You may wish to share this information with other Viet Nam veterans who are still alive.
