Military Bases and Mesothelioma

1 in 3 people diagnosed each year with Mesothelioma cancer had served in the U.S. military. Over 25 million U. S. service members were exposed to asbestos during their military service around the world with peak years being 1930-1980. Not only were military service members exposed to asbestos, but their family members as well. 


The latency period for developing asbestos cancer can be 10-50 years after your initial exposure.


The U. S. Army estimated in the 1990s that the cost of cleanup for 32 of its military installations totaled $1 billion. (The Installation Asbestos Management Program Assessment). 

Asbestos Exposure on Navy Ships

Military bases contained more than 300 asbestos-containing products and materials that were used regularly in the constructions of ships until 1980. Thousands of military veterans that served from 1940-1980. 


Asbestos products onboard ships included insulation, pipes, boilers, cement, sealers, gaskets, cables, tubes, valves, electrical fixtures, wiring, pumps, decking, paints, non-skid flooring, and in bulk headwalls, ship hulls, mess halls, engine rooms, navigation rooms, and sleeping quarters.
