Richard Burr, US Senator North Carolina This week, after years of pressure from Congress, the Department of Veteran�s Affairs [link 1] began providing compensation to veterans suffering from illnesses caused by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. I want to thank Master Sergeant Jerry Ensminger for his work on behalf of the Lejeune veterans and their families. Jerry�s daughter was born on Camp Lejeune and died at nine years old as a result of exposure to toxic chemicals in the water. Because of his tireless work, Lejeune veterans are finally getting the compensation they deserve.� � [image = burr.enews.senate.gov//images/user_images/ensminger_1.png] [link 2] Master Sergeant Jerry Ensminger testifies before the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee The government negligently poisoned the men and women who served at Camp Lejeune. These service members sacrificed for our nation and have earned this care and support. Veterans who served at Camp Lejeune for 30 days or more from 1953 to 1987 and are suffering from a service connected medical condition like kidney cancer or Parkinson�s disease are eligible to receive disability benefits. The VA estimates that more than 900,000 service members could have been exposed to toxic water. Many victims still call North Carolina home. � I encourage all veterans in NC who may be eligible for compensation to contact my office for assistance making a claim.
