IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL VETERANS.

UPDATE to obtaining veterans benefits (PDF).

As you know, many veterans were exposed to asbestos during their service.  It was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, primarily because of its resistance to fire.  This exposure can result in a number of life-threatening respiratory conditions, as well as mesothelioma, a deadly cancer associated only with asbestos exposure  Many vets that served - especially in the Navy - were exposed to ASBESTOS. 

Here are some links to pages that are vital to all veterans.

http://www.MalignantMesothelioma.com

http://www.MesotheliomaSymptoms.com

http://www.MesotheliomaWeb.org/veterans

http://www.MesotheliomaGuide.com/veterans

http://www.asbestos.com/veterans

http://www.asbestos.com

http://maacenter.org

http://www.MesotheliomaSpecialists.org

http://www.MesotheliomaHelp.org

These pages covers possible exposure points, symptoms of asbestos-related disease, and programs designed to assist vets in preventing, diagnosing, and treating these ailments.  We'd like to suggest to all veterans that you visit these sites .


More than 150,000 Americans die from lung cancer each year. Smoking and tobacco are the leading causes, but other causes include: radon, asbestos, beryllium, and others. Veterans are even more likely to get lung cancer than the general public because of exposure to a number of these pollutants.

Lung Cancer Answers (http://www.lung-cancer.com) provides information on causes, types of lung cancer, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options. We also have a page for veterans: http://www.lung-cancer.com/assistance/military.html


The Nursing Home Abuse Center (www.NursingHomeAbuseCenter.org) is an informational website created to help the elderly and their loved ones who are concerned about nursing home abuse and neglect. Our site covers everything from signs of nursing home abuse to what steps to take if you suspect abuse. We hope to draw increased attention to this problem and do our part toward ending abuse of our veterans in nursing homes (http://www.NursingHomeAbuseCenter.org/veterans-and-nursing-home-abuse/).
