President Barack Obama signed the Janey Ensminger Act into law in 2012, named for the 9-year-old girl who died from leukemia after being exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, where her father, Jerry Ensminger, lived when she was born.
The new rule allows military and non-military family members to file claims under VA’s benefits program for healthcare-related illnesses caused due to exposure to toxins found in the base’s water supply for at least 30 days between 1953 and 1987.
