  1. Still haven't figured out reparations though 🤦🏼‍♀️

  2. I was only at Lejeune for a few days in 1973. Still, it makes me wonder.

  3. Shame on those in power who could care less about the health of the masses of people. Serious lack of transparency. Silent cover-ups is a regular thing with our military and intelligence agencies. The fact the Congress still has been blocked by Biden to show CIA complicit in the assassination of JFK is proof enough. We need to drain the swamp. America is not longer the shining beacon of light it used to be. Let's DEMAND more transparency now and into the future. God bless America.


  5. They shout support the military and the military don't support the military 🤔

  6. Nobody Knows Until Everybody Knows.” And When Everybody Knows, IT’S ALREADY TOO LATE.

  7. How totally tragic 😔😭
    So sorry for each of you & your
    wee tiny babies 😢

  8. That’s absolutely horrific!!! No telling how many women, men and children have died or seriously harmed by the neglect. Each one of the families should take part in a class action suit.
    My question is, How many other bases had the same issues!

  9. Where is Erin fighting for these people? Screaming at the top of her lungs?🤬

  10. Horrible horrible horrible these people need to be held accountable for murder

  11. The Navy is 7,000 short of their recruiting goal. Hah ha, b*stards.

  12. “….I’ve seen some children with serious birth defect’s of all sorts and know of many people whom are too this very day pretty messed up from the water contamination on base at Lejeune”!!! G-MOMMEE

  13. There were Marines still getting sick from the water at Camp Lejeune in the early to mid 90's.

  14. The claim is set up for mostly "White People" to file. They bumped the years back so that there wouldn't be hardly any "Black People" filing for compensation.

  15. "Lejeune" rhymes with "Learn"

    As in: "Learn how to pronounce Lejeune"

  16. This is what happens when you vote for people who are against protecting the environment.

  17. A man who was stationed at Camp Lejeune once dipped his meat stick into my depths. It was massive and he said it got that way only after he was stationed there!
