Asbestos was used in various forms and ways to protect against extreme heat.
The Veteran didn't know too much about its use but many were exposed to this deadly mineral.

Tune to this weeks show and we will give you some asbestos details.

The show starts at 5:30 central time and we will take call ins.

while I was in the hospital for 6 months, I had life threatening lung issues,,, along with pancreas disease, the doctors had to xray my lungs every day for a month plus drain the lfuid using long needles several times.. the doctors kept asking what I worked with and I told them all the different jobs and stuff I have done inluding all the stuff I did on active duty...

They were convinced I had something in my lungs causing a growth... come ot think of it, I did have a case of pnumonia on active duty and was hospitalized for that too along with hospitalization for gastritis..

Any ideas???

Virtually ALL Navy veterans and shipyard workers that worked or served in all but very modern times were exposed to asbestos. Many others were exposed to insulation in homes, schools, and workplaces. Asbestos was used in such things as clothes washers, surface vehicles, aircraft (large and small), siding and roofing, to name a few of the more common items.

Chuck is CORRECT!

I posted the entire Navy VA Asbestos Pies list here years ago:

It determined the potential level of exposure via MOS.

Almost anyone who was born prior to around 1970, probably had exposure to asbestos. I remember the heating pipes in school and sleeping next to them on my troop transport to VN. Also anyone who smoked "Kent" cigarettes, w/the micronite filter, probably had exposure to asbestos, too. Kent used asbestos, in their filters, in the mid 50's, so there's a good chance those using them could come down w/mesothelioma. I know I smoked them but nothing yet, thankfully! We've had so much exposure to asbestos, that we don't even know about. Sheetrock, cement, ceiling tile, brakes, roofing, etc, etc, etc!!! jmo
