Veteran and family health care: Camp LejeunePosted: June 5, 2019, 3:00PM
In the 1980's, contaminants were found in several wells that provided water at Camp Lejeune North Carolina. It is estimated that the contaminants were in the water supply from the mid-1950s until February 1985 when the wells were shut down.
There are benefits for Camp Lejeune veterans and family members that include health care for 15 conditions. Veterans, National Guard and reserve members, and family members who lived on the base for at least 30 days (cumulative) between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987 are eligible. The benefit area includes all areas within the Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River boundaries.
