Last modified: FEBRUARY 12, 2021

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.

Army Veterans Asbestos Exposure & Mesothelioma

The Army used Asbestos in the construction of military bases until the late 1970s, which means that even veterans who recently served in Iraq are in danger of developing asbestos-related illnesses.

It is highly advisable that all Army veterans should be aware of the dangers Asbestos posed to them or their families and seek legal help.

Jobs with High Risk Asbestos Exposure in the U. S. Army

Asbestos has seen many uses in nearly all branches of the military because of its usefulness, versatility, and affordability. It was used most notably in a wide variety of construction materials, because of its superior heat resisting properties.

Asbestos was used to fireproof insulation, flooring, roofing, pipes, caulking. Soldiers worked, ate, and slept inside these buildings, and they were constantly surrounded by Asbestos and were prone to be exposed. Vehicles also contained Asbestos materials in brake pads, gaskets and clutch plates.

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

  • Pipefitters
  • Millers
  • Construction Workers
  • Carpenters
  • Miners
  • Shipyard workers
  • Vehicle maintenance teams
