Asbestos Exposure on Cruisers


After Battleships were mostly retired from service, Cruisers took their place as the U.S. Navy’s largest and most powerful direct-combat surface ships. Cruisers are mid-sized warships with several different makes, each specializing in a particular function. With models including Command Cruisers, Battle Cruisers, Guided Missile Cruisers, and even Aircraft Cruisers, they were versatile ships, and an important part of the fleet throughout the 20th century. Though still used, very few remain in service today.

Most Cruisers were built and operated during the height of asbestos use amongst Navy vessels, leaving many veterans who served aboard these ships at risk of contracting mesothelioma. Asbestos was utilized in much of the on board equipment, including boilers, pumps, valves, and turbines. Even the respective ammunition ships have been exposed to asbestos as well.
