VBA needs to tighten up procedures to get poison-water benefits to Camp Lejeune veterans

Maybe you’ve seen the lawyer ads on TV. For a period of some 35 years, a million people were potentially exposed to contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune, the Marines’ base camp in North Carolina. Since 2017, veterans from that era are presumed to have service-related illnesses from drinking that water. Now the Veterans Affairs Department inspector general has found, the Veterans Benefits Administration hasn’t done a great job processing the claims. Federal Drive host Tom Temin talked about this with deputy IG for audits and inspections, Brent Arronte.
