The Camp Lejeune Justice Act applies to military personnel, their families, and civilians who were exposed to the toxic water supply for at least 30 days between Aug. 1, 1953, and Dec. 31, 1987.

“Of the 66 surviving Medal of Honor recipients today, 48 are Vietnam veterans. Our Vietnam Medal of Honor recipients represent an entire generation of Vietnam servicemembers who waited too long to receive the welcome home and the recognition they deserved,” McManus said. “And while this public acknowledgement of these heroes is long overdue, coming half a century after these soldiers left these fields of battle, it’s also vital to keep remembering all those military servicemembers who put everything on the line to defend our nation and our values.”

“The story of each of these men is truly inspirational,” McManus
