President Biden Signs Camp Lejeune Act!

A new announcement will impact the lives of our military members and their families! This week, President Biden signed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act permitting those affected by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune to file a claim for compensation.

Over a million people made up of military personnel and their family members were exposed to contaminated water between the years 1953 and 1987.

The contaminated water is directly linked to injuries and illness to those exposed. According to MTMP, the injuries include the following:
Cancer
Neurological defects, such as Parkinson’s disease or Amyotrophic
Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Miscarriages
Birth defects
Other injuries

The government was aware of the contamination and neglected to take action, allowing innocent people to contract life-threatening diseases.

The United States Government failed to protect its service men and women, and their families. If you or someone you know spent time at Camp Lejeune between 1953-1987 and are facing illness, you deserve justice.
