As a vereran, I thank you for your info.

There has also been a problem with the water supply at Camp Lejeune NC. I think it may have started in the 60's, so any Marine vets may have a possible claim in that situation. I don't know what the diseases were.

The open website Veterans Benefits Network has extensive amount of recent info on Camp lejeune water contamination and Agent Orange issues. Just use their search function at top of page. The website puts out a mix bag of both accurate and inaccurate advice on VA claims and other issues but mostly helpful. Regards

I was in boot camp at Camp Lejeune in the summer of '64. It was so hot, I remember drinking a lot of water while showering! I recommend anyone planning to Join USMC, don't choose summer! [emoticon]

A buddy from my NAVY Ship is actively involved in plotting ships locations during WESTPACs to help prove shipmates qualify under the Blue Water Navy AO act and he sent me info about another group fighting for approval

There is a push by a Veterans Group to get AO recognition and Congress approval for Service Personnel on Guam

They are called "Agent Orange Survivors of Guam" and can be found on FaceBook under that name

Hopefully folks will support their efforts and Congress will include GUAM as a AO Location


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Last time I was at Lejune was with my Uncle in 97. Aunt had passed and went to help him.
The barracks on the beach looked like a storm just went through.
I asked why he didn't run with his old unit to help him stay fit. Commander didn't like the idea > he lived the sterotypical Career Marines life. Three tours in Nam One while I was there, served all over the world and died in 2007 from Agent Orange caused Diabetes and cancer from smoking. Didn't have any kids. The Corps was his family. If he had stayed in another ten years he might still be with us.We slow down and disease death overtakes us.
