For extra credit in my RCC class I had to see a film in the Global Film Festival. The film that I chose to see was Semper Fi, which was about Camp Lejeune in North Carolina that had toxic chemicals in the drinking water from 1957-1987. The chemicals that all the Marine Corps were drinking had an effect on hundreds of people that lived there. The effects that it had on everyone was that babies were being born with important organs missing or that many children and adults were getting cancer. Before watching this film I really didn’t know what to expect and thought it would be boring, but I really found it interesting. Seeing what those people went through and not told about what could happen is very sad. It left a mark on me in the end.
