I was reading the New Bern Sun Journal editorial regarding the VA beginning to implement the The Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012 (H.R. 1627). Link to the article is at the end of this paragraph. I encourage you to pop it open and take a read, then read the commentary below. Suffice it to say, the article tries to sum up Camp Lejeune contamination, but leaves out a lot of information and research. While the editorial does call out and criticize the two years of lag from time of passage to implementation, it also characterizes the VA’s moves for assistance as finally “light at the end of the tunnel” for marines and their families. Unfortunately, that’s far from the case.
