In the 1950s, the Seventh-day Adventist Church struck a deal with the US Army so it’s members would not have to fight or kill other human beings. They agreed to volunteer fresh human subjects for direct biological weapons experiments. The 19-year program had more than 2,300 Army soldiers being experimented on.

Much of this was done at the Fort Detrick Research Center in
Maryland.

The human guinea pigs were called “White Coat Volunteers“. Many were trained by scientists to become Army core medics and then sent to run monitored controlled experiments on themselves and others.

The volunteers were conscientious objectors who agreed to be infected with debilitating pathogens. In return, they were exempted from frontline warfare.

The research involved:

  • Anthrax
  • Rabbit Fever
  • Yellow Fever
  • Rift Valley Fever
  • Hepatitis A
  • Yersinia Pestis
  • Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis

Operation Whitecoat came to an end in 1973 when the draft for the U.S. military ended and thus no more conscientious objectors were to be conscripted.

  1. That’s an horrific story. How those poor people must have suffered. I wonder if they made the same deal during Vietnam and who with or maybe they had a conscience by then.

  2. The Church agreed to do that? I feel so sorry for the people who were experimented on. That must have been horrible for them.

  3. Sounds like one of the sub-projects of MKULTRA. Have you seen Truthstream Media’s documentary, yet?
