Veterans and dependents are holding a series of informational meetings to spread the word to others on Camp Lejeune’s water well contamination. The Marine base’s water system was contaminated with organic solvents. Exposure to organic solvents has been linked to cancer and other serious diseases.

(CAMP LEJEUNE, NC) – Veterans and dependents affiliated with “The Few The Proud The Forgotten” (see, a Camp Lejeune website, have held two informational meetings in Virginia and Florida to provide critical information to veterans and dependents on the water well contamination at Camp Lejeune. Additional meetings are planned in July and August in Roanoke, Virginia Beach, Charlotte, Syracuse, and Pittsburgh.

The Bell Legal Group sponsored two informational meetings for Camp Lejeune. Jerry Ensminger, a retired Marine Master Sergeant, spoke at the first meeting in NC and Mike Partain, a former Camp Lejeune dependent and male breast cancer survivor, spoke at second meeting here in Florida.

According to Mike Partain, they were not really sure what to expect with these meetings or who would show. Based on their experiences at the two meetings, it is quite apparent that our Camp Lejeune community is in the dark as to what happened at the base. Partain and Ensminger plan to hold future meetings to spread the word to others.”
