Camp Lejeune Victims in East Point, GA: What Happened?
Camp Lejeune is U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) Base in North Carolina. Between August 1953 and December 1987, the water supply to the camp was contaminated with life-threatening chemicals such as vinyl chloride and benzene. The contamination was detected after 40 years and almost a million people had lived or worked in the camp. The soldiers who lived in the camp, their family members, and contractors in the military base were the most affected. These people started to develop health complications such as elevated cases of cancer, dementia, birth defects, infertility, kidney problems and Parkinson’s disease among others.
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act in August of 2022 allows people who lived or worked in Camp Lejeune at the time to file a claim with the U.S. Federal Court seeking financial compensation.
