Dear Friends and Supporters of Civilian Exposure,
As we continue to receive an overwhelming number of personal story submissions and coverage ideas from you, I am constantly reminded of the challenges experienced by individuals and families affected by military contamination, including Camp Lejeune water contamination. I am especially reminded of the personal hardships, struggles and loss of so many of you, as well as the emotional roller coaster of extremes that can be absolutely draining to even the strongest of people.
While disaffected bureaucrats make decisions from the comfort of their executive chairs regarding military contamination claims, laws, and what folks deserve, real people and families at ground level are suffering enormous burdens emotionally, physically, mentally, and financially. On top of this, they are dealing with healthcare systems and institutions that are riddled with human error, medical mistakes and sometimes lackluster care.
We Are Here to Serve You!
My personal desire to help others learn more about military contamination at base communities across the country is as strong as ever. Our subscriber base, social media followers, and media partnerships and reach are continuing to grow daily. Our goal is to help you understand the political tug-of-war over laws and benefits, and to arm you with knowledge on how best to get the right healthcare and assistance for you or your loved ones.
Finally, I also want to take a moment to wish all of you a safe and happy 4th of July holiday. As we wave our flags and watch the fireworks, let’s remember why we have those freedoms and the ability to enjoy this holiday every year.
Please take time to remember our veterans, their spouses, families and all of the civilian workers and support personnel in their efforts to keep our nation “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
We thank you for your service, your stories, your sympathies, and your steadfast and unwavering support.
Gavin P. Smith
