Camp LeJeune Toxic Water Victims
Since the 1980s, authorities have known that people who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune, a military base in North Carolina, we exposed to toxic chemicals. This exposure was primarily through drinking the water from the base’s water supply. Now, the government has come clean, and countless people may have their health threatened.

What Was In The Water?
