The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "One out of three victims of mesothelioma we help are Veterans of the US Navy, and about 75% of those individuals have one thing in common; during their service to our nation their ship was involved with a retrofit or an overhaul at one of our nation's Naval Shipyards. Frequently these individuals had super exposure to asbestos while their ship was in dry dock, and about half went onto work in the private sector where they were re-exposed to asbestos because of a work skill they learned in the Navy, such as a machinist, a boiler technician, a plumber, pipefitter, an electrician, or a fireman.
"Before a US Navy Veteran retains the services of an attorney to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim, we are urging them to call us at 866-714-6466 to ensure they really are dealing with the nation's best mesothelioma compensation attorneys." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
