Serious medical conditions have been linked to contaminated water at the Camp Lejeune military base. Many veterans, reservists, guardsmen, their families, and civilian employees may have been exposed to high levels of toxic chemicals including Benzene, Trichloroethylene, Perchloroethylene, and Vinyl.  In 1985, two water wells on base were shut down due to water contamination.  Those who were on active duty or residing on the base for at least 30 consecutive days between 1953 and 1987 may be eligible for compensation.
