The Camp Lejeune water contamination story continues. Camp Lejeune is a United States Marine Corps base that is located outside of Jacksonville, North Carolina. For those who haven’t heard about the toxic water in Camp Lejeune, the water is said to have caused countless suffering for decades.

 

The US Department of Veterans Affairs released a statement stating,

“If you served at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune or Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River in North Carolina, you may have had contact with contaminants in the drinking water there. Scientific and medical evidence has shown an association between exposure to these contaminants during military service and development of certain diseases later on. If you have qualifying service at Camp Lejeune and a current diagnosis of one of the conditions listed below, you may be able to get disability benefits.”

There have been thousands of US service members alongside their civilian family members that have bathed, drank, and cooked with the toxic water contained in Camp Lejeune. Now, many former residents and employees of Camp Lejeune suffer from life threatening diseases such as: kidney cancer, bladder cancer, leukemia, Parkinson’s disease, and many others.

Have You Been Personally Affected by the Water at Camp Lejeune?

Recently, the federal government passed a new law allowing victims harmed by the water at Camp Lejeune to bring lawsuits and get compensation for their injuries. Within the new Honoring Our PACT Act, contains the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. That Act created a federal right of action for anyone to sue over any claimed exposure to toxic water at Camp Lejeune between 1953-1987. (Washington Examiner).
