The Blinded Veterans Association (BVA) has joined 11 other Military and Veterans Service Organizations in supporting the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2021 (H.R. 2192) in a recent letter to Representative Matthew Cartwright (D-PA-8), sponsor of the legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives.
North Carolina legislation limiting the claims window for injuries related to the contaminated water supply at Camp Lejeune has negatively impacted military families. H.R. 2192 will correct the injustices that the earlier legislation created by allowing service members, veterans, and their families the ability to seek relief for the injuries incurred at Camp Lejeune.
“BVA applauds Representative Cartwright for recognizing the need for this legislation and appreciates his continued support for our military members, veterans, and their families,” said James R. Vale, National Service Director, Veterans Benefits & Policy. “We will continue to advocate for victims of toxic exposure in the future to ensure that legislation correcting these injustices is passed.”
