New Video Features Vets Sharing Camp Lejeune Contamination Stories

From the 1950s onward until the late ’80s, military members, their families and civilian personnel based aboard Camp Lejeune were unknowingly exposed to decades of toxic water contamination.

High risk levels of benzene, TCE and PCE could be found in a variety of water sources on base.  Imagine drinking it, showering in it, cooking with it, swimming in a pool with it, or training in it!  That was the reality for many, including these vets who now face lingering health issues as a result.
