On August 6, President Obama signed into law a bill providing health care for the hundreds of thousands of people who suffered ailments from being rThaexposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. This was a huge victory for the many victims who have been fighting to get recognition and care for the many illnesses that have stemmed from the Camp Lejeune contamination.
The Project On Government Oversight worked hand-in-hand with the many heroes who fought for this victory including Ret. MSgt. Jerry Ensminger, Lejeune victim Mike Partain, the Environmental Working Group, and filmakers Rachel Libert and Tony Hardmon.
Watch the video to see the signing, the celebration and the work that still needs to be done.
