Asbestos was commonly used on military vessel because of its resistance to heat and fire. All ships built before the mid 1970s were filled with asbestos-containing materials. These asbestos materials were used in engine and boiler rooms, navigation rooms, sleeping quarters and mess halls. As a result, Armed Forces Veterans have a great risk of developing asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma.
