The drinking water at Camp Lejeune was contaminated between 1957 and  1987 causing an undetermined number of cancer or other ailments for  service members and their families. This year Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.)  introduced the Caring for Camp Lejeune Veterans Act (S. 277),  which would provide government-funded health care for those exposed —  the right thing to do. However, to pay for doing the “right thing” the  bill includes a provision which would remove the appropriations that  help cover the cost of the Defense Commissary system and would fold the  commissaries in with the military exchange system. This would  effectively eliminate the discounted grocery benefits many  service members and their families rely upon.
