It's common for serviceman who learned a skill while in active duty to carry those skills with them after leaving the service. This could mean working in the same type of environment where asbestos is present
(PRWEB) October 01, 2014
This week the Mesothelioma Victims Center is providing victims of mesothelioma or those who are family members of someone recently diagnosed with a news article from a UK newspaper that focuses on a diagnosed victim who had served in the Royal Navy. The Center felt this article would resonate with any US Navy Veteran.
The article says, "Richard served in the Navy for 14 years, after joining as a boy seaman once he left school at the age of 15. He trained in electronics and served on the Royal Yacht Britannia for eight years. In his statement, he said he would work in boiler rooms and find himself up against, or climbing over, asbestos-lagged pipes.”
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “The common thread found in this article that links what's happening in the UK to what is happening here in the US is that after his discharge in 1964, he worked for several forklift truck firms carrying out servicing, repair and maintenance work before setting up his own business. It's common for serviceman who learned a skill while in active duty to carry those skills with them after leaving the service. This could mean working in the same type of environment where asbestos is present."
