America is a country built on honesty, integrity, and care for one’s fellow man…isn’t it? For veterans and their families who served at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, these values are being questioned in light of the information that has come out about water contamination, lack of transparency, and the lifelong health effects many of them experience each day. Between the years of 1953 and 1987, the water supply at Camp Lejeune was, in essence, poisoned. Runoff from toxic substances made its way into the drinking water and was used/consumed by servicemen and women on base, their families, contracted employees, and other personnel who spent time living or working on site.
Sadly, many of the individuals exposed to this contaminated water have since experienced severe health complications, including various types of cancer, neurological issues, infertility and/or miscarriages, anemia, heart conditions, and even chronic skin conditions.
The fact that so many individuals are suffering due to the contaminated water is bad enough, but what’s worse is that many of them have been left to suffer alone for years, with no acknowledgement by the government and no compensation or assistance in handling their many health complications…until now. In recent months, more and more awareness has been raised about this issue, and a major lawsuit has been filed on behalf of veterans, families, and employees affected by the water contamination at Camp Lejeune. This lawsuit will seek justice for each individual affected, and will bring much-needed support to these victims and the ones who care for them.
