We often get asked by veterans with disabilities “Could it be from the toxic water at Marine Camp Lejeune?”. This is a difficult question and proving a medical nexus is a challenge. The VA has not been receptive to such claims. It is kind of like how they treat Blue Water Navy claims, it makes sense but you cannot get VA to agree that the exposure resulted in the disability. The solution may have to be provided by Congress. A bill has been introduced to help those exposed to toxic water at Camp Lejeune - but it is not clear that it will become law. You can read more at:
