About Civilian Exposure

Building Awareness, Accountability and Assistance for Civilians Exposed to Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization/public charity.  We are building a talented board of advisers and benefit from a driven founder with a clear mission around the following 5 specific goals:

1. Raise national awareness of civilian exposure to Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Contamination

2. Ensure accuracy, transparency and release of all information and pertinent studies in order to create a more informed community and foster accountability

3. Ensure protections and assistance in current and future legislation for civilian DOD personnel employed at Camp Lejeune during the contamination period (Current legislation only covers military personnel, but we are monitoring progress on possible changes).

4. Raise funding to support brand and issue awareness, operations and offer aid and assistance to civilian families in need

5. Expose contamination risks for civilians employed on other U.S. military installations beyond Camp Lejeune.

We need your help. Evidence shows that the contamination of the water supply aboard Camp Lejeune, NC went on for over 40 years, and so did potential negligence and cover-up. Responsibility for the results of this contamination has yet to be claimed by the government or other appropriate parties. The fight continues to inform civilian employees of the base and help those affected by this contamination to receive the help and justice they need.


Note from the Founder:

Gavin P Smith - Civilian Exposure Non ProfitI’m Gavin Smith.  Acute Leukemia (AML) took the life of my father in June, 2008. Based on the evidence available and personal research, it is my strong belief that his leukemia came from over four decades of benzene and other toxins that contaminated base water supplies aboard Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, NC.  I remain hopeful that scientists and others who are currently studying this issue come to the same conclusion as my belief.  At the very least, I felt the need to do something and take action.  My father was a civilian Dept. of Defense employee on the base for 25 years.  That’s why I’ve built this site.

Please help us in our efforts to bring awareness and help to civilian DOD victims.  By shedding further light on these issues, we hope to educate all who were exposed so that they can seek the proper help and guidance required.  We also look forward to making sure that recently passed legislation includes official help for civilian employees as well as military personnel.

Thank you for your support.
