Agricultural Water Supplies Now Contaminated with Forever Chemicals

 |  Michael P. Ehline  | 
You want to love the memories from your childhood, no matter where you lived. But there’s a different charm to spending your early years near military bases. Among the beautiful memories of Marines, Airmen, Sailors, soldiers, or Coastguardsmen marching, planes flying, and jets roaring, those who have lived near these bases are now faced with a threat. Much military personnel and their families are now finding out that the water they had been drinking in their homes and various materials they had been using were contaminated. This type of water contamination is not to be taken lightly as the contaminants are hazardous and cause multiple health problems. We are talking PFAS contamination here. PFAS refers to per and polyfluoroalkyl substances, which include two chemicals: PFOS, whic…

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Health Issues – What You Must Know

 |  Michael P. Ehline  | 
Camp Lejeune is a US Marine Corps base on the east coast located in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Currently, it’s part of a combined installation, so it includes the Marine Corps Air Station at New River. Its training facilities are found on the miles of beach between Wilmington and Morehead City with its deep water ports. This base is home to various Marine units, including expeditionary forces. Between the 1950s and 1980s, military service members stationed at Camp Lejeune were exposed to serious toxic substances in the drinking water. This happened in training and residential areas. Veterans at Camp Lejeune during that period could have developed specific diseases and could be eligible for disability compensation apart from their traditional VA disability benefits. These vet…

Welcome to the Paul Ehline Ride

 |  Michael P. Ehline  | 
Paul Ehline died from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma as a direct result of his exposure to toxic chemicals used in chemicals and defoliants to clear jungle canopies in Vietnam around fire bases. Like former lance corporal, and now pastor Robert Hammond, who was also stationed at Camp Pendleton, many fellow Marines have become cancer victims. “Hello and welcome to the Paul Ehline Memorial Ride, based in Los Angeles, CA. I am attorney Michael Ehline. I am the son of recently departed Swedish Viking warrior Paul Ehline, USMC (Ret.). It’s been several years since Paul’s eternal soul left this earth. Losing him, for me, it’s been the most confusing, depressing, and calamitous of my life.” On 8-15-20, at Lytle Creek Firing Line, our Marine brothers and sisters gathered and listened to …

What Percentage of Veterans Have Cancer?

 |  Michael P. Ehline  | 
Looking at the conditions that veterans are exposed to, anyone would assume that veterans have a higher frequency of cancer diagnosis than the general population. Cancer diagnosis among veterans of the US army was made possible by VA. This administration has allocated resources and led from the front in researching cancer and finding the best way to treat and mitigate it. Despite all the good works done by Veterans Affairs, it must not be ignored that military service members have been getting all types of cancers due to the conditions they were exposed to. In many cancer diagnoses, it becomes clear that the veterans were exposed to conditions that could have been avoided with attention to detail. The military could use more research and conclusion before using certain chemic…
