Smith to join the Camp Lejeune Community Assistance Panel (CAP).  Smith, founder of CivilianExposure.org, will serve on the CAP with other notable members under a mandate to build awareness, accountability and assistance for civilians exposed to decades of water and soil contamination aboard Camp Lejeune Marine base in NC.
