About the Caring for Lejeune Veterans Act, S 277
Veterans may have been exposed to toxic water at Camp Lejeune for decades. There currently is a bill that has been approved by a Senate Committee to help victims of Camp Lejeune water contamination. This bill offers healthcare for Camp Lejeune water contamination impairments. Woods and Woods urges you to contact your Senators and Congresspeople to let them know you support the Caring for Lejeune Veterans Act. However, we also feel this bill is not doing enough to help our veterans and their families. As many as 750,000 veterans and their families may have been exposed to Camp Lejeune’s toxic water. Many of these veterans and family members are battling cancers, leukemia, or have already died. These veterans, widows, and dependents are currently not eligible for VA disability benefits for Camp Lejeune water contamination impairments.
