If terrorists attacked Camp Lejeune and killed and disabled many American children, servicemen, and their spouses, we would be outraged. What would we do if tens of thousands of Marines, their spouses, and their families were exposed, sickened, or died from chemically-poisoned water at Camp Lejeune caused by our own military? Well, our military has spent forty years denying, covering-up, and stonewalling attempts to disclose the massive scope of this tragedy. Our government finally passed legislation to address the health needs of our veterans and their families once the first President of this century left office. However, the injustices continue as paperwork processing delays and confusion prevent care needed by our veterans and their families. It’s an important story of “A Trust Betrayed”.
