The USS Albany (CG-10) was an Oregon City-class heavy cruiser laid down on March 6, 1944, and launched on June 30, 1945. It was commissioned on June 15, 1946, under Capt. Harold A. Carlisle’s command as CA-123 and served in the U.S. Navy for 29 years until it was decommissioned on August 29, 1980. On November 1, 1958, the ship was reclassified as a guided-missile cruiser with the hull number CG-10. During its activities, the ship carried a complement of 1,969 people on board and had its main missions in Boston, Norfolk, Casco Bay, the West Indies, and Gaeta. After decommissioning, the ship was struck from the Navy List on June 30, 1985, and sold for scrapping in 1990. If you served onboard the USS Albany (CG-10) and worked in the engine or boiler rooms, navigation rooms, weapons and ammunition storage rooms, you are at high risk of developing asbestos-related cancers and respiratory conditions due to the asbestos that was used extensively in nearly all components of the ship. What you need to know is that once a diagnosis has been made, a clock known in legal terms as a statute of limitations starts ticking. If that clock runs out, so has the opportunity you might have had to obtain the financial compensation for the harm that has been done to you.
