Vinny. You need a good IMO; espophageal cancer is not listed as presumptive to the dirty water at Camp Lajeune. Do your research. Look up what are the best hospitals that treat that awful disease. Read articles and, more importantly, the specialists that write them. Contact them and see if they can write an IMO connected the contaminated water with the disease. It has to cite studies or clinical events that show the connection with contaminates found and they cause cancer. Be sure they say that in their professional opinion "it is more likely than not" the the ec was caused by the water. Have the doctor show his professional resume/credentials showing his opinion is creditable. The IMO is going to cost you some money, but it is probably your best shot.
