Officials at the 157th Air Refueling Wing of the Air National Guard at Pease announced that the Air Force will conduct “an occupational health study at the base” beginning this year.

“The records-only study will be conducted with assistance from the Air National Guard surgeon general,” according to a press release issued by guard officials Saturday. “It will examine the personnel records of all service members assigned to Pease between January 1970 and December 2018 to determine if there is a higher incidence of cancer for those who were assigned at Pease Air Force Base or Pease ANGB during that time frame.”
