Mesothelioma Help Now
From shipbuilding products to many of the construction materials used to build military bases, asbestos-containing products often surrounded military personnel as they performed their daily duties. Why? Because asbestos is strong and heat-resistant, many companies used it as a key ingredient in the goods they manufactured and sold to the U.S. government. There were many ways veterans—especially those who served in the U.S. Navy—could have been exposed to asbestos, including:
Serving on U.S. Navy ships
Working in shipyards
Living in military barracks
Repairing military vehicles
Participating in asbestos removal from aging bases and other military buildings
With potential asbestos exposure around every corner, it’s no wonder that our veterans account for 1/3 of mesothelioma cases diagnosed each year.
