Veterans and Asbestos Exposure


Veterans that held certain trade jobs were exposed to asbestos. Many military jobs involved working in confined spaces with bad ventilation, operating machinery and equipment that had asbestos-containing products.

Asbestos was also used extensively as fireproofing and insulation in Navy ship engine rooms, decking, sleeping quarters, hulls of ships and boiler rooms because of its resistance to heat.

One in three Navy Veterans will develop an asbestos related disease in their lifetime and are at greater risk of developing mesothelioma, an aggressive form of cancer.

Mesothelioma has been medically linked to workplace asbestos exposure.
