Asbestos was a substance used heavily within all branches of the United States military. Whether soldiers were enlisted in the Navy, Army, or Marines, there is a high chance that they might have been exposed during their time of service. Today, many veterans are compensated for asbestos-related diseases that remained hidden within their bodies for ten to fifty years.
This Memorial Day, we would like to take some time to recognize all of our United States veterans and the dangerous situations they have all been through. Every branch of the military fought under tough conditions - on land, sea, and as well as in the air. Memorial Day gives us the chance to acknowledge all of the soldiers that gave their lives for our country.
