Public Health Notice for Marine Corps Vets at Camp Lejeune 1950s through the 1980s
Marine Vets: Were you at Camp Lejeune 1957-1987?
If you served on active duty at Camp Lejeune between 1957 and 1987, you may have been exposed to contaminated drinking water.
Under a new law (pdf) just signed by President Obama, you can receive VA medical care if you are suffering from any of the medical conditions described in the law and resided or served on active duty at Camp Lejeune for not fewer than 30 days between January 1, 1957 and December 31, 1987.
VA will provide care immediately for those conditions while your eligibility under the new law is confirmed. VAâ€™s Public Health web site contains important information about the law along with links to other useful web sites. Or call 1-877-222-8387 for assistance.
