USS Bryce Canyon (AD-36) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS Bryce Canyon (AD-36) was a Shenandoah-class destroyer tender laid down on July 7, 1945, and launched on March 7, 1946. It was commissioned on September 15, 1950, under Capt. M. R. Gerin’s command with the hull number AD-36 and served in the U.S. Navy for 31 years until it was decommissioned on June 30, 1981. During its activities, the ship carried a complement of 859 people on board and had its main missions in Panama Canal, San Diego, Yokosuka, Sasebo, Pearl Harbor, Nagoya, Kobe, Subic Bay, and Long Beach. After decommissioning, the ship was struck from the Navy List on June 30, 1981. For the services brought to the country, the USS Bryce Canyon received one battle star. If you are a Navy veteran who has been diagnosed with a life-threatening condition as a result of exposure to asbestos, you can receive compensation without having to file a civil lawsuit against the companies that negligently manufactured or sold the asbestos products that caused you cancer. Any veteran diagnosed with a condition attributable to exposure while serving on active duty, even though it presented many years after discharge, is eligible, provided he/she has been discharged honorably.
