Lejeune Water Contamination Linked To Illness

The government has agreed that one man's illness is directly linked to his military service.

Former Camp Lejeune Marine Paul Buckley, who now lives in Massachusetts, says the Department of Veterans Affairs granted his disability claim. That's according to the Jacksonville Daily News.

The paper says Buckley was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, something the government now agrees is connected to his military service at the base in Jacksonville.
