Book Hour: A Trust Betrayed: The Untold Story of Camp Lejeune and the Poisoning of Generations of Marines and Their Families


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”.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
