The U. S. Army branch extensively used Asbestos in the construction of military bases, putting U. S. Army veterans at risk of being exposed to Asbestos and developing extremely dangerous conditions such as Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.

Not only soldiers were put at risk of Asbestos Exposure. Servicemen that performed various duties for the U. S. Army were also in danger:
