Deadly SNAFU, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C.

A thoroughly researched investigative journey, George Swimmer’s “Deadly S.N.A.F.U., Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C.” spells out the irrefutable scientific and medical evidence that connects the dots between the decades-long exposure to water contaminants during military service at Camp Lejeune and the development of certain diseases later on. This is an impassioned indictment of the toxic pollutants and ineffective notification process experienced by about one million Marines, their families and base personnel. Yet, Swimmer prevails as he focuses on the human spirit that connects all Marines.

As a Marine Corps veteran, Swimmer’s evident passion for and knowledge about the subject shine through, and he does an excellent job of making military reports and unfamiliar terms understandable for novices.
