For many veterans and their families, receiving a mesothelioma diagnosis is devastating. The cancer might have been developing in their bodies for years or decades, and there is still no known cure for the asbestos-related disease.
It might come as a surprise to learn that a loved one was exposed to asbestos during their time of service in one of the United States Military branches. For many veterans, this exposure remains unknown until they are diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, like mesothelioma.
San Francisco Fleet Week is an annual public event that honors the contributions of the men and women of the United States Armed Forces while advancing cooperation and knowledge among civilian- and military-based Humanitarian Assistance personnel.
