The USS Brennan (DE-13) was an Evarts-class destroyer escort laid down on February 28, 1942, and launched on August 22, the same year. It was commissioned on January 20, 1943, under Lt. Comdr. Harry A. Adams' command with the hull number DE-13 and served in the U.S. Navy for 2 years until it was decommissioned on October 9, 1945. During its activities, the ship carried a complement of 198 people on board and had its main missions in California, Miami, Florida Straits, Haiti, Charleston, and New York. After the decommissioning, the ship was struck from the Navy List on October 24, 1945, and sold for scrapping the following year. If you were exposed to asbestos while serving in the Navy, getting the right medical treatment and care is the first priority. However, many Navy veterans diagnosed with asbestos-related conditions also worry a great deal about their family and what will happen when they are no longer around. Knowing that family doesn't have to worry about finances can be a huge weight off the minds of everyone involved. The dependents and survivors of veterans whose death was caused by a disease stemming from military asbestos exposure are eligible for financial compensation.
