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. Today, veterans who served between 1940 and 1980 are at high risk of developing health prob- lems from asbestos. Those who served more recently also are in danger because it took decades for the military to remove or replace asbestos products, and veterans who were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan may have been exposed to asbestos in the debris of damaged buildings. Veterans are allowed to apply for benefits for asbestos-related diseases, but proof is needed in order to connect the disease to service. Ifa veteran cannot prove their asbestos exposure is limited and isolated to their mil- itary service, they are advised to seek compensation from asbestos man- ufacturers. The VA recognizes mesothelioma as a service-connected medical con- dition; 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 ans/. Claims may also be started at the previously mentioned web site in conjunction with the county veterans' service officer's assistance. Mesothelioma is a cancer that affects the lining of the lungs or ab- domen and in some cases the lining of the heart. Symptoms of the can- cer resemble less serious conditions, which usually contributes to a late diagnosis. Mesothelioma typically develops 20 to 50 years after expo- sure to asbestos.
