VA Healthcare Law Changed Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Disability Compensation

Before this law was in effect, veterans and their families could not receive monthly compensation for illnesses caused by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.

Fortunately, that has changed and now there is compensation available to affected veterans and their families.
