Civilian Exposure was featured on the 5:30p and 6:00p newscasts on WITN 7. The interview consisted of the founder commenting on the recent VA announcement on Camp Lejeune, as well as sharing the story about his late father. He also discusses the cause and mission of Civilian Exposure to continue to work on behalf of civilian workers to get the accountability and assistance that they, too, deserve.
The following clip is another version from the 11:00pm newscast later in the same evening, with the addition of fellow Camp Lejeune CAP member Chris Orris (born at Camp Lejeune).

I was Married to Robert Earl McDonald and my blood test is showing chemicals that should not be in it. And can only come from water contamination at Camp Lejeune. HELP DYING.
I am sorry for the news. Can you provide greater detail as to what chemicals are presenting in your tests so far? Specific illnesses that you currently have? I’ll see what I can find out for you. -GS
Currently, veterans who provide evidence meeting VA requirements for service in Vietnam, and who can medically establish that anytime after this ‘presumptive exposure’ they developed any medical problems on the list of presumptive diseases, may receive compensation from the VA. Certain veterans who served in Korea and are able to prove they were assigned to certain specified around the DMZ during a specific time frame are afforded similar presumption. The differences in requirements between Vietnam and Korea service stem from the fact that congress has not made any laws to provide for the same sweeping presumption of exposure similar to the Agent Orange Act of 1991 for Korean veterans.
