Veteran Writing a Claim Countless Marines, military contractors, and their families who were stationed or working at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River in North Carolina were exposed to water full of hazardous chemicals. Investigators have uncovered that as many as 70 harmful chemicals, such as benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), and vinyl chloride, tainted the water supplies. There is a strong correlation between these toxins and the development of various life-altering illnesses. Service members who fought for the United States of America trusted the federal government to provide them with clean drinking water. Unfortunately, military leaders have chosen to ignore the chemicals plaguing base water supplies for more than three decades.
