Birth: Nov. 7, 1963
Evansville
Vanderburgh County
Indiana, USA
Death: Mar. 31, 2003, Spain

Army Spc Jeffries was assigned to D Company, 1st Battalion, 152nd Infantry Regiment, Illinois Army National Guard. At the time of his death, his unit was in Kuwait. He was evacuated from Kuwait and died at a hospital in Rota, Spain, where he was taken after becoming ill. Jeffries suffered a blood clot in his lung and acute pancreatitis according to information given to the family by the military. Bill served 10 years with the Air Force and later joined the National Guard. He was liked by everybody. Old people. Young people. Everyone liked him; right on sight. He was big, and he was kind. Bill just dropped. They thought he had been shot. That is how suddenly it happened. After being evacuated from Kuwait to Spain, he was in intensive care for a week before dying. A doctor in Spain said Bill had the largest pulmonary embolism he had ever seen. He also had a swelling of the pancreas, often caused by heavy drinking or some drugs; Jeffries was not a drinker. He was back in the United States just days before his death to attend his own father's funeral. He had a scab on his arm from his recent smallpox vaccination. A disturbing parallel has also surfaced: soldiers becoming ill or dying from similar ailments in the United States. In some cases, the soldiers, their families and civilian doctors blame vaccines given to them by the military, particularly the anthrax or smallpox shots. Some of the soldiers who died suddenly had complained about symptoms suffered by reporter David Bloom -- including pain in the legs that could indicate problems with blood clots. (bio by: Brenda N)
