RAYMOND — A New Hampshire veteran sickened with lung disease after he was stationed at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina during the ‘70s is continuing his battle with the Department of Veterans Affairs to receive compensation for his inability to work.

59-year-old Terrence Mulligan, a former Marine, lives in Raymond and has the medical bills related to his illness paid for by the VA, according to the Union Leader. However, Mulligan does not receive VA work compensation.

The Union Leader reported that contaminated water at Camp Lejeune caused Mulligan’s illness that has left him and his wife – who retired to take care of him full-time - struggling to pay their bills.
