Norfolk, Virginia is the world’s largest naval base. During the Cold War, over 200 US Navy Ships were based in Norfolk. Norfolk is the home base for the Atlantic, Mediterranean, and Indian Ocean fleets and at any given time there were thousands of Navy Veterans or shipyard workers preparing a ship for deployment, making repairs on ships that had just returned from deployment, or involved in sea trials for new navy ships.
Prior to 1980, Navy Sailors were routinely exposed to asbestos on their ship or while their ship was preparing for deployment at Norfolk. The sailors or crew involved in their shipboard work frequently had extreme exposure to asbestos. These sailors at Norfolk could have been assigned to nearly any type of navy ship including an aircraft carrier, amphibious assault ship, cruiser, destroyer, frigate, a navy supply ship, oiler, or a nuclear submarine. Of all work groups in the United States, Navy Veterans may have had the most extreme exposure to asbestos. Navy Veterans account for roughly one-third of all US citizens who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
