  • Video Sharing Information with Military Members About Contaminated Drinking Water Settlement, Warn of Potential Scams:

Attorney General Nessel and Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA) Director Zaneta Adams recently partnered for a video to share important information about resources available to military members and their families who may have been exposed to toxic chemicals, and to warn them about scammers who may try to exploit them for financial gain.

During their service, veterans may have been exposed to contaminated drinking water at U.S Marine Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River in North Carolina between August 1953 and December 1987.
