Hello survivors. Just wondering if any of the survivors in this group were based at or lived on the or near Camp Lejeune in NC? In case you do not know the water there was contaminated with toxins like Benzine, PCA's and TCA's. It was caused by a dry cleaner dumping solvents into the water and cleaning solvents used by the Marines to clean tanks and equipment that leached into the ground water. It was covered up for 30 years by the Navy/Marines and they way it was discovered was that Marines started getting male breast cancer which was quite rare and they started corresponding. Anyway somewhere I read that PCA exposure can be a cause of SCC of the head and neck. Please let me know if you were there during the above 30 year time frame. We were there as my father was a Lt. Col and served in WWII and Korea.
