A fact sheet issued by VA Health Care states that all veterans stationed at Camp Lejeune from 1957-1987 should have been contacted through a mail campaign initiated by the Department of the Navy.

Capt. Brian Block, a spokesman for the U.S. Marine Corps, said veterans are encouraged to register if notified.

"As a registered member, veterans will be sent updates on ongoing health studies related to PCE exposure, and they can use that information when determining their next step," he said. "We leave it up to the individual to file a claim for health benefits, but we certainly encourage all veterans to seek medical attention if they are ill.”

Camp LeJeune’s water contamination stems from PCE exposure.
