Government to pay billions to Camp Lejeune vets for contaminated water

The Obama administration continues to cross things off its last-minute to-do list. One of the latest examples is that it agreed to pay $2.2 billion over 5 years to Marine veterans stationed at Camp Lejeune here in North Carolina. The reason is that they were exposed to dangerous amounts of contaminated drinking water if they were on base for at least 30 days between Aug. 1, 1953, and Dec. 31, 1987. The VA estimates that there were 900,000 service members who could have been exposed during the time period.

A traumatic brain, neck or back injury, paralysis, broken bones and concussions are all possible outcomes.
