What happened at Camp Lejeune?

 

Camp Lejeune is a military base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Starting in the year 1953-1987 the water was contaminated with harmful chemicals that can cause cancer and other serious illnesses. The chemicals leaked into the water from underground storage tanks causing the water to become extremely toxic. This affected thousands of soldiers that stayed at the camp. In some cases, it can affect the victim’s family and their children have suffered birth defects.   

What was in the water at Camp Lejeune?

 

Trichloroethylene, Perchloroethylene, Benzene, Vinyl chloride, and other dangerous chemical compounds. 

What is the Camp Lejeune Justice act of 2022? 

This bill that congress just recently approved and is expected to be passed shortly will allow people exposed to the toxic water at Camp Lejeune to file a lawsuit. The act acknowledges that the people that stayed at the camp consumed toxic chemicals that are linked to causing cancer. The lawsuit must be filed within two years of the bill being passed.   

How many deaths have there been? 

  • At least 14 deaths from kidney cancer have been linked to drinking contaminated water at this Marine Corps base.
  •  

  • Five female veterans who served during the time period when their families lived on the base say they’ve suffered from breast cancer since returning home — one died from it in 2013; another was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 and died last year; two more have been diagnosed with breast cancer since then; one more has high blood pressure which she believes resulted from her exposure to toxic chemicals while living at Camp Lejeune.
