“It has been a priority of mine to help provide closure to our former Lejeune families,” Hagan said. “This cannot happen until all ATSDR studies are complete, and until we ensure that these families exposed to water contaminants at Camp Lejeune receive the appropriate compensation from the VA. Congress, the Department of the Navy and ATSDR all need to work together on these efforts.”

"What they were doing at Camp Lejeune is not that different from what they were doing at other military bases," Miller said. "I would not be at all surprised to find out if they had contamination of the soil or in the ground water at Ft. Bragg like there has been at Camp Lejeune."

DoD Sought Delay in Lejeune Water Study

DoD Sought Delay in Lejeune Water Study -Defense Department e-mails obtained by The Daily News seem to corroborate a U.S. Congressman's claims Thursday that military leaders cared more about bad press than Camp Lejeune Marines poisoned by contaminated water.

No other story needs to be told. Mother Russia had a chance to save her men, but the decision makers chose to let them die, just like the Marine Corps and the Dept. of the Navy. Hell, the Navy doesn't like Marines in the first place. It was easier, less costly, and dead men tell no tales. That is why.

Camp Lejeune: Contamination and Compensation -hearing 9.16.10 Investigations and Oversight Subcommittee

A note from Mike Partain- thanks Mike for keeping us posted!!

Greetings,


A lot has been happening over the past two months behind the scenes. First we are starting to hear of more veterans getting VA awards. The latest is one of the 64 male breast cancer cases from Camp Lejeune. Unfortunately, their families who also lived on the base continue to be frustrated with the Navy and the USMC.

Next week there will be a hearing on Capitol Hill on September 16th. We have copied the information for the hearing and listed it below. It is our understanding that it will be simulcast on the internet. The link should appear the day of the hearing on the Committee’s website.

Finally, we have had several articles appear in the press. It is important that we view these articles and leave comments whenever possible to support media interest in the Camp Lejeune tragedy. The latest story was in the St Petersburg Times.

Take care and continue to press forward. Please do not forget about our discussion board. There is a wealth of information there and a great place to ask questions. Unfortunately, our web-site email account is not the best place to ask questions because we are not professionally staffed to handle all the emails. In another words, we are all volunteers and there are too many emails and not enough fingers to type answers.

Camp Lejeune breast cancer survivors try to raise awareness - St. Petersburg Times

Camp Lejeune breast cancer survivors try to raise awareness - St. Petersburg Times

The 13 breast cancer survivors gathered last month at a Boston hotel for a calendar photo shoot that will raise money to research the causes of the disease.


They shared stories of recovery. They talked about surgeries and hospital stays and their hopes for the future. In their camaraderie, some may have momentarily forgotten the improbable and puzzling novelty of their gathering.
