Items of interest to the extended military family

From HQ Marine Corps:
Camp Lejeune Water Study

The United States Marine Corps encourages all those who resided at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune between 1957–1987 to register at to receive updated information and notifications regarding the ongoing Water Study. (Please cut and paste the address into your browser.) If you know of any family members or friends who were at Camp Lejeune during this period, please encourage them to register.

The Marine Corps is reaching out to other government agencies in attempt to reach Marines, civilians, and family members who resided at Camp Lejeune , NC between 1957–1987.

In response to this effort, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will be sending out letters on our behalf. The IRS has not disclosed any addresses or other tax information and has no involvement in the matter aside from forwarding the HQMC letter. If you receive a letter from the IRS and are already registered, no action is required. If you are not registered, please go to (cut and paste into your browser) or call our toll free hotline: 1-877-261-9782. If you are already registered and need to update your information, please call the toll free hotline at the number provided.

This is something worth tossing out onto your email lists and blogs.  The response hasn't been that good, and HQMC is reaching out to catch people's attention. 

Secondly - In their continuing effort to keep everyone informed as they move ahead to implement the new GI Bill, the VA has posted preliminary information concerning maximum Tuition and Fees for each state on the GI Bill web page.

We return you to your regularly scheduled bloggishness.


What was wrong with the water?
If you click the links, they found some chemicals had been stored badly, I believe, and possibly contaminated the ground water.
