Several types of documents could help you prove you resided at Camp Lejeune and that your time there may be the cause of a medical condition. Useful documents may include:
DD Form 214 and Other Service Records
The National Archives explain that DD Form 214 is a servicemember’s discharge document. This document contains several details that may be relevant to a Camp Lejeune water contamination claim, including where the servicemember served upon entering and departing the Armed Forces. This form may refer specifically to your or a loved one’s time spent on Camp Lejeune.
The United States Marine Corps University highlights several other outlets that may possess useful service records, including the National Archives and Marine Corps Headquarters. Our team can reach out to these institutions for any relevant records they possess.
Whether you or a loved one was in the Marines or simply lived at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987, we’ll seek any available proof of your time on the military base. Lease agreements or other records that prove your residency at Camp Lejeune will benefit your claim.
