The Advocate says, “Most Navy Veterans with mesothelioma we have been honored to assist in the last two decades spent time on their ship or submarine at a navy shipyard. These men were almost always required to stay onboard their ship or submarine while it was being repaired or going through a retrofit. Frequently they were required to assist the shipyard workers. Unlike they shipyard workers-they had to stay onboard their ship-submarine and sleep there. Many of them would wake up in the morning covered in asbestos. This is what we call extreme exposure to asbestos.
