The SS Bozeman Victory was a Victory ship built under the Emergency Shipbuilding Program in just 106 days during World War II by the Oregon Shipbuilding Corporation. It was turned over for Merchant Navy operation. During its activity, the ship carried a complement of 62 Merchant Marine and 28 US Naval Armed Guards and served as an ammunition ship in the Pacific War. Most of the asbestos exposure aboard this ship occurred in engineering spaces and boiler rooms. The ship was scrapped in 1972 at Campana, Argentina.
Asbestos fibers are microscopic and can be inhaled without a person’s knowledge. Inhaling asbestos fibers is particularly dangerous because once these fibers enter the lungs, they never leave.
