Storyline

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 the shocking discovery of a 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. Written by Rachel Libert

boring boring boring.

Not to be confused with many other movies of the same name.

From 1957 to 1985 the US military dumped toxic waste into the drinking water at Camp LeJune. Many people got cancer and died.

The movie shows various people crying about getting cancer or their loved ones getting cancer and how unfair it all is and how praying for miracles is the best use of their time.

This movie could easily be edited to ten minutes without loss of information.

I feel unsympathetic. These people joined the military knowing full well the military's primary goal is hurting others, not protecting its own. This means exposure to dangerous chemicals. It is part of the job. They volunteered for it in return for a license to kill. The unfairness is children of military personnel paid for their parents' decisions.
