Branches of the Military and Exposure to Asbestos

The various branches of the United States military have served, and continue to serve, our country valiantly and with honor, and the members of these branches deserve our constant gratitude and support. Unfortunately, in years past, many members of the military were wrongfully exposed to asbestos through their different posts, and are now suffering some of the devastating side effects of this exposure. Prior to 1979, the use of asbestos was allowed in many construction and military projects, exposing servicemen and women to its dangerous fibers. Therefore, members of the military who served before the official national ban against asbestos may be in danger of developing an asbestos-related condition.

If you or someone you know served in the U.S. military and might have been exposed to asbestos, contact an experienced asbestos attorney with Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-781-3955 to discuss how we may be able to help you fight for compensation.

Branches that Might Have Been Exposed

No branch of the military is excluded from the risk of asbestos exposure, since many members, regardless of specific duty, may have been exposed at one time or another in a variety of locations. Therefore, if you served in any of the following branches, you might have been exposed to asbestos:

  • Army
  • Navy
  • Marines
  • Air Force
  • Coast Guard

The five main branches of the U.S. military, and their affiliates, may have put members at risk for asbestos exposure. If you served in any of these branches before 1980 and you believe you may have been exposed to asbestos, you may want to consider contacting a medical professional.
