Pleural Mesothelioma and Veterans

As a result of their exposure during military service, U.S. veterans account for a sizable percentage of pleural mesothelioma patients. The group of veterans most at risk is naval veterans and this is a result of the mass amount of asbestos material used on naval vessels. Navy veterans who worked in shipyards or aboard vessels experienced more asbestos exposure than the average member of the Armed Forces and can claim benefits from the VA system for this service-related condition.

Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening illnesses that are a result of exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a material that was commonly used in hundreds of military applications such as cement, clutches, valves, brakes, gaskets, boilers and ships primarily because of its resistance to fire.
