According to Dr.
Michael Margolian in the paper Agricultural Bio-terrorism: View from
the United States: Since the 1960s, the Department of Defense (DoD) has
worked with USDA to protect America's plants and animals against
disease. In 1971, 4,000 DoD personnel provided assistance to USDA
during a Texas outbreak of Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis. Some 140
soldiers were enlisted in support of the campaign against the 1983
Pennsylvanian outbreak of Avian Influenza. In June 1997, DoD lent
equipment to USDA for combating the Medfly in Florida. In 1998, DoD
assisted the South Dakota National Guard in developing contingency
plans to deal with a potential biological attack against the state's
swine population. In 1999, DoD's US Army Medical Institute of
Infectious Diseases supported the Centers for Disease Control's efforts
to isolate the cause of New York's West Nile Fever outbreak. ....
