Jerry Ensminger and Rachel Libert discussed their documentary on retired U.S. Marine Corps Master Sergeant Jerry Ensminger, which chronicles his efforts on behalf of Marines and their families exposed to toxic drinking water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. These efforts resulted in the introduction of the Janey Ensminger Act in the House and the Caring for Camp Lejeune Veterans Act in the Senate. Both bills are awaiting further legislative action. In 1985 Ensminger’s daughter, Janey, died of leukemia. The documentary details how he heard a local news story in 1997 about a proposed health study on adults and babies exposed to toxins in the water system on the base. Rachel Libert introduced one of the participants, Mike Partain, who was diagnosed with male breast cancer at age 38. He is one of 78 confirmed cases of this type of cancer where each victim shared Camp Lejeune as a common trait. close
