Service members, their families, and civilian employees living at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina from 1953 to 1987 were drinking and bathing in water with toxic concentrations of chemicals between 240 and 3,400 times higher than safety standards.
Some estimates suggest one million Marines, their families, and civilian workers were exposed to trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), benzene, and vinyl chloride. All are known carcinogens (cancer-causing chemicals) and are extremely dangerous to human health, including unborn children.
