According to Stars and Stripes, veterans and military families affected by the water contamination at Camp Lejeune have long been the primary source of information on camp conditions due to the lack of documentation. Recently, the Department of Defense released thousands of documents that were previously safe-guarded and related to the conditions at the base.
The records are a major - but still incomplete - source of information regarding the toxic contaminates that have been found to have caused many serious health risks and disabling conditions to those who lived on the base. Families and veterans who used theCampLejeunewater are often found to suffer from cancer potentially connected to exposure to toxins in the water supply.
Veterans who claim disability for conditions they believe are connected to their service at Camp Lejeune often meet difficulty proving the connection due to the lack of records of the environmental conditions. With these new reports available to the public, claims for veterans’ disability benefits may be easier to pursue for the veterans affected by the toxic chemicals now known to be present in the water supply.
