Veterans May Still Be Exposed to Asbestos Today
While many think that mesothelioma only affects veterans who fought in past wars like WWII or the Vietnam War, servicemen and women who fought in more recent wars, like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, may have been exposed to asbestos and could be at risk of developing mesothelioma as well.
In addition, many older military vehicles, ships, and buildings may still contain asbestos.
