The enlisted personnel who worked on Military Ships or other vessels were often exposed to asbestos. The enlisted personnel who worked the dirty jobs in the boiler room, in maintenance, pipefitting and construction had the heaviest exposure, but anyone who served aboard ships or in the shipbuilding yards likely had direct contact or significant second-hand exposure to asbestos. Navy-related mesothelioma has been traced to this asbestos exposure.
