Air Force Veterans

Air Force Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

Sadly, many military veterans have developed mesothelioma from asbestos exposure. Air Force veterans have been at risk of developing mesothelioma and related diseases as a result of asbestos exposure since the 1930’s. Asbestos containing materials were widely used for decades due to their exceptional heat resistant properties, fireproofing, insulation, and cost effectiveness. As a result of these characteristics, asbestos has been used in a wide variety of manufactured goods. Many Air Force veterans may have been exposed to asbestos through items which include:

  • airplane engines and other systems
  • ceiling and floor tiles
  • cement products
  • roofing shingles
  • insulation products
  • plaster
  • coating
  • fire proof fabric based clothing
  • paper products
  • packaging
  • brakes
  • clutches
  • transmission parts
  • electrical wiring and systems
