From author Mike Magner comes this fresh and revealing look at the ongoing tragic consequences of decades of water contamination and neglect at Camp Lejeune, NC.

Plus, it poses the question we’ve already been asking here at Civilian Exposure…is this just the tip of the iceberg? How many more military bases and installations have suffered from toxic contamination. How many military and civilian employees around the country have been exposed and are now suffering serious health problems as a result?
