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
