Until 1978, asbestos was widely used in military vessels, installations, and aircraft. Building materials, deck tile, electronics, ventilation systems, boilers, turbines, weapons systems, wire wrapping, wall insulation – asbestos was everywhere in those days. And since the use of asbestos coincided with the massive growth in manpower caused by the Cold War, more warriors than ever before were exposed to the deadly mineral. As a result, millions of veterans today have a higher level of asbestos exposure than those who did not serve.
If you have served in one of the United States’ armed forces, the debt owed to you for the sacrifices you have made is beyond calculation. You have offered your life for our country, and you deserve the best medical care available for any harm you have experienced due to your service.
Sadly, however, many veterans do not have access to the health care they need.
