Clapper Patti Schweizer & Mason (CPSM), mesothelioma attorneys who have represented veterans from the Coast Guard, Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force in asbestos lawsuits, show support by donating to this year’s U.S. Coast Guard Day, celebrated at Coast Guard Island in Alameda. Coast Guard Day is held to honor the founding of the U.S. Coast Guard, originally called the Revenue Marine, on August 4, 1790.
Christine Renken, an asbestos attorney at CPSM, is also spouse of an active duty Coast Guardsman and President of the North Bay Coast Guard Spouses Club (“NBCGSC”). In addition to CPSM’s donation, Ms. Renken will be participating in this year’s Coast Guard Day, representing the NBCGSC. Ms. Renken says, “This is a wonderful event for the men and women of the Coast Guard and their families to honor their work and service to our country.”
The Coast Guard is the oldest maritime service in the United States, with an official start date of August 4th, 1790 – hence the date of this celebration. The U. S. Coast Guard was the only armed force at sea until the Navy was established in 1798. The official use of the name Coast Guard began in 1915.
The United States Coast Guard is dedicated to ensuring the safety of those at sea, enforcing Federal maritime laws in oceans, coastal waters and inland waterways, and protecting the marine environment throughout the nation. Coast Guard Day, held in various locations around the nation, is now the largest community celebration of all the branches of military.
CPSM is showing their support due to the large number of Veterans and active servicemen from the Coast Guard who were exposed to asbestos during their time of duty and have now developed or died from mesothelioma (a fatal form of cancer) or asbestosis (an incurable scarring of the lungs.)
To read more about how exposure to asbestos occurs for Coast Guard members and what to do if you are an active duty member or veteran with mesothelioma and need assistance, please visit the Veterans Section of the CPSM website that contains information specific to the Coast Guard.
