Army Veterans: Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure

Army veterans were at risk to asbestos exposure while serving duty fighting for our country. While numerous Navy veterans spent their tour of duty on ships that contained several tons of asbestos, many Army veterans experienced asbestos exposure while being transported on Navy ships. Further risk of exposure for Army veterans came as a result of their stay in Army military housing and at base facilities, or working on or around army cars and trucks.

Army Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

Military areas containing asbestos included:

  • headquarters buildings
  • administrative buildings
  • technical buildings
  • vehicle sheds
  • rifle ranges

Housing areas containing asbestos included:

  • family housing
  • recreational grounds
  • exchanges
  • gas stations
  • establishments for public life

Hundreds of army installations contained asbestos flooring, flooring tiles, ceiling tiles, wall insulation, asbestos cement in building foundations and other base structures. Asbestos was also used in thousands of military vehicles in the form of brakes, gaskets and insulation.
