Mesothelioma and the Marines

The United States Marine Corps developed out of the Revolutionary War, becoming the world leader in amphibious warfare tactics. These soldiers are known for their ability to successfully deploy at a moment’s notice with stunning efficiency. However, as soldiers were exposed to the full range of military options, using Navy and Air Force support relatively often, many former Marines may have been exposed to asbestos and the risk of serious asbestos-related health problems.

If you were exposed to asbestos while in the military and are now suffering from an asbestos-related illness, you may have grounds for legal action. For a free consultation, contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-781-3955 today.

Combined Arms and Mesothelioma Risks

In the Second World War, the United States Marines used a strategy of combined arms to win battles in the Pacific theater. The theory behind combined arms strategies is characterized by the deployment of multiple branches of the military in a single operation to achieve victory. As a result, many Marines, using naval vessels for transportation and deployment and aircraft for tactical support, were exposed to multiple sources of asbestos on a daily basis.

Marines may have encountered the following asbestos exposure threats:

  • Aircraft brakes and gaskets
  • Aircraft engines
  • Piping onboard and in barracks
  • Adhesive onboard ships
  • Insulation in barracks and other installations
  • Tiling found onboard and on bases

Although not found in the confines of naval vessels quite as often as service members in the Navy, the flexibility of the Marine Corps put these soldiers in a distinct degree of danger of developing mesothelioma.
