I was stationed at MCAS New River, NC from 77-81. It's adjacent to Camp Lejeune.

In 2004 I was diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer. Two years later I was urinating one night when I noticed I was passing blood and tissue. A tumor had eaten through my left kidney and it had to be surgically removed.

No mention of MCAS?


In years gone by, if there was a hydraulic spill in the hangar, they called for a fresh water washdown and it went into the scupper drain. Where it want, we didn't know, but it was probably the fresh water supply. Now it's speedy dry and lots of it! We had to comply with the regulations, I don't see how or why Lejeune got away with this for so long. Same Navy.
