U.S. Navy armored BattleshipsLarge, heavily armored Battleships were the leading capital ship of the U.S. Navy prior to World War II. As weapons technology advanced, innovations such as torpedoes, mines, and aircraft left Battleships vulnerable, and their production ceased in the early 1940s. Largely replaced by Aircraft Carriers in modern times, Battleships still served an important historical role in armed naval conflict.

Until the early 1970s, asbestos was used in boilers, turbines, pumps, valves, electrical components, and other equipment commonly found on Navy ships. As the vessels were no longer made after the 1940s, it is likely veterans who served aboard Battleships were exposed to some amount of asbestos, and are at risk of developing mesothelioma.  Especially at risk are those who dealt with the operation, repair, and maintenance of this equipment in the fire rooms below deck.
