Because the drinking water contamination at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 was acute and involved many toxic chemicals, there are numerous diseases and conditions that can result from exposure.

It is important to know that if a family member of a veteran who was stationed with them at this military base develops one of the health problems below, they may also be entitled to financial compensation.
