CAMP LEJEUNE WATER CONTAMINATION

Camp Lejeune information meeting scheduled at Pittsburgh, PA for November 6st. 

Courtesy: CNN

(PITTSBURGH, PA) – An informational meeting about the CAMP LEJEUNE WATER CONTAMINATION effects will be held Saturday, November 6, 2010, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel, located at 107 6th Street, Pittsburgh, PA.

Sometime in the 1950’s through 1987, the US Military improperly disposed of chemical degreasers and other toxic substances that ultimately contaminated the drinking water at Camp Lejeune.

These contaminants posed multiple health risks to countless military personnel, their families, and private individuals living and working near the vicinity of the base. These risks include:

• Cancers

• Reproductive disorders

• Birth defects

• Neurological problems

• Kidney and Liver disease
If you believe your health or the health of a loved one has been affected from exposure to the water at Camp Lejeune, you are invited to attend this free informational seminar. Lunch will be provided at no charge to registered guests.

 We currently have 19 people registered to attend the November 6th meeting in Pittsburgh. In order to justify the expenses incurred with such a trip it will be necessary to have at least 50 people registered and confirmed by October 30th.

Mike Partain and Jerry Ensminger will be giving an overview of the contamination which includes the supporting documents.

Representatives from the Bell Legal Group will be present for questions during the lunch break and after the presentation.  

This is your opportunity to get informed about what happened at Camp Lejeune. If you would like to receive more information about our meeting, email Vanessa Bertka at vbertka@edbelllaw.com. Please copy Mike.Partain@tftptf.com and jerry.ensminger@tftptf.com in the email. 

Additional meetings are scheduled for:

November 21, Elks Lodge, Troy, NY

December, exact date TBD, Tampa Florida

  1. i would just like to say i was proud to serve as a marine and discharged honorable
    if i were hurt in war it would not upset me but to come home and die a slow death from those in charge who poisoned me is shameful and now they dont want to take responsiblity for what they have done to all svc men and family they quick to jump on private firm that would caused this but who there to watch them if it wernt for them i wouldnt be on disability and have to go to food pantry just to have food for the month thank you

  2. Concerning the water contamination in Camp Lejeune: They poisoned their own too! It really is horrible what those gangsters and banksters – illegally and inhumanely in charge – are doing to the people the world over.

    Personally I’m interested because in this colony of the criminal cartel, The Netherlands, one reads or hears little to nothing about this. Even if every year dutch marines have been training there too. All war machine-compliant propaganda media according to the saying: What they don’t know doesn’t hurt them?

    Well, it sure does, and after suffering they die. And here’s what ‘they’ do:

    “Pentagon delaying notices”

    Thomas Dail

    Jacksonville Daily News – February 16, 2004 – Pentagon officials say they probably won’t consider telling former Camp Lejeune residents of their possible exposure to toxins in water until a federal agency finishes a study of childhood cancer and birth defects in children who were exposed to the poisons before they were born.

    Last week, U.S. Sen. Jim Jeffords, I-Vt., called for the Secretary of the Navy to notify people who lived on base before 1985 about their possible exposure to tetrachloroehtylene, or PCE, and trichloroethylene, or TCE.

    The contamination was found in wells in 1980. The wells were capped in 1985.

    After a survey identified 103 cases of childhood cancer and birth defects among 12,598 children carried in the womb while their mothers lived at Camp Lejeune, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, or ATSDR, began working on a full study to see whether drinking water contamination increased a fetus’ risk of developing certain birth defects or childhood cancers after birth.” – [end quote]

    The rest is here at Url.: http://www.jdnews.com/news/water-27310-camp-lejeune.html

    And the ‘St. Petersburg Times’ had a good story on it too:

    “Is the Marine Corps withholding Camp Lejeune documents?”

    By William R. Levesque, Times Staff Writer.

    Tuesday, March 30, 2010 – The Marine Corps insists that documents detailing water contamination at Camp Lejeune have been available to federal scientists for years.

    But scientists at the agency studying whether Lejeune’s polluted water caused cancer and other illnesses say the Marine Corps and Navy failed to disclose electronic databases containing more than 700,000 documents.

    One of those documents estimates that between 400,000 and 1.1 million gallons of fuel were spilled at a base fuel farm, a revelation crucial to understanding whether tens of thousands of people at the North Carolina facility were exposed to poisons.

    There’s more at Url.: http://www.tampabay.com/news/military/veterans/article1083693.ece

    And 40 years later they still fight against their own Marine Corps…

    Literally sickening.

    No wonder so many are expressing their anger, disappointment and frustration. That’s what the victims and congress told Ray Mabus, the Secretary of the Navy. – PDF – Url.: http://www.veteranstoday.com/downloads/Lejeune_Congressional_Letter.pdf

    Join the maddening crowd and fight! It’s better to die standing up, then living on your knees.

    You’ll die anyhow.
