Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of veterans have been exposed to toxic asbestos- contaminated materials during military service. Asbestos was highly regarded for its heat resistance and fireproofing capabilities. It wasn't until the 1970s that the military began to phase out asbestos. The Navy was the most infamous branch to use the most asbestos based insulation at every shipyard and in every ship. Veterans are allowed to apply for benefits for asbestos-related diseases, but proof is needed in order to connect the disease to service. If a veteran cannot prove their asbestos exposure is limited and isolated to their military service, they are advised to seek compensation from asbestos manufacturers. The VA recognizes mesothelioma as a service-connected medical condition; however, evidence must state that the disease is just as likely as not to have been caused by exposure to asbestos in the service. If you or a fellow veteran are stricken with mesothelioma and believe to have been exposed to asbestos during your military service, please call for an appointment with your county veteran service officer. More information can be found at Claims may also be started at the previously mentioned web site in conjunction with the county veterans' service officer's assistance. Primarily caused by asbestos exposure, mesothelioma is a cancer that affects the lining of the lungs or abdomen and in some cases the lining of the heart. Symptoms of the cancer resemble less serious conditions, which usually contributes to a late diagnosis. Do not hesitate to contact your.service officer with questions regarding asbestos exposure or injuries related to military service.
