Something was in the water at Camp Lejeune. Hear from one of the victims Tying It Together with Tim Boyum

    • Politics

This summer, Congress passed a bill called the PACT Act, and the president signed it into law. It gives significant help to veterans impacted by burn pits. But it also helps victims and families from water contamination 40 years ago at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. It allows them to receive compensation. You have probably seen the law firm ads recruiting potential clients. This week we talk with one of the victims, as well as Larry Hall, who is a former marine, former state lawmaker, and former Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. He’s now working with a law firm representing dozens, if not hundreds, of these families.
