"While the big bad corporation has often been the offender in many of the world's greatest environmental disasters, in the case of the mass poisoning at Camp Lejeune, the culprit is a revered institution: the US Marine Corps. For two decades now, revelations have steadily emerged about pervasive contamination, associated clusters of illness and death among the Marine families stationed there, and military stonewalling and failure to act. Mike Magner's chilling investigation creates a suspenseful narrative from the individual stories, scientific evidence, and smoldering sense of betrayal among those whose motto is undying fidelity. He also raises far-reaching and ominous questions about widespread contamination on US military bases worldwide"--

This book proves that Semper Lie will always outrank Semper Fi.

They sent us to The 2nd,
They taught us to be proud.
They taught us to wear The Green,
And to say it strong and loud.
But when we get to Saint Peter's Gate and he asks,
"What did they teach you in the Corps
to pass on to your son and daughter?"
We'll answer with a quick report -
"Sir, Drink the beer but not the water!!"
