"Marine Corps Master Sgt. Jerry Ensminger was a devoted Marine for nearly twenty-five years... As a drill instructor he lived and breathed the 'Corps' and was responsible for indoctrinating thousands of new recruits with its motto Semper Fidelis or 'Always Faithful.' When Jerry's nine-year old daughter Janey died of a rare type of leukemia, his world collapsed. As a grief-stricken father, he struggled for years to make sense of what happened. His search for answers led to a shocking discovery of Marine Corps cover-up of one of the largest water contamination incidents in U.S. history. Semper Fi: Always Faithful follows Jerry's mission to expose the Marine Corps and force them to live up to their motto to the thousands of soldiers and their families exposed to toxic chemicals. His fight reveals a grave injustice at North Carolina's Camp Lejeune and a looming environmental crisis at military sites across the country"--DVD jacket.

Very well-done documentary! Very touching, thought-provoking film! It is shocking that the US Govt is so uncaring and heartless towards all the army personnel and their families, who are literally dying! It didn't have to happen! My hat is off to this Master Sargeant for his perseverance and determination!

This documentary summarizes the US military's cover-up of toxic chemicals leached into the water supply, and documents the health tragedies and fight to have the military contact everyone who lived at Camp Lejeune during that time period. Many men ended up with breast cancer, many babies died at or near birth, and many children died of diseases related to these chemicals. Others died of cancer. The military motto is to take care of each other always (Semper Fi), but the military did everything but.
