Asbestos and mesothelioma, the forgotten war.

Countless veterans of WWII, as well as Iraq and Afghanistan war vets, were exposed to carcinogenic asbestos while in the military, as were civilians who worked in shipyards or tinkered with their own vessel. Exposure to asbestos may lead to the development of mesothelioma cancer, a fatal disease that strikes countless veterans. While all branches of the military are at risk, mesothelioma navy cases remain the highest. For more information please visit the Mesothelioma and Asbestos Awareness Center website.
