USS Cebu (ARG-6) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS Cebu (ARG-6) was an internal combustion engine repair ship in the service of the US Navy during World War II. The ship's builder was Bethlehem-Fairfield Shipyard based in Baltimore, Maryland. During the war, the ship was responsible for delivering equipment and trained personnel for the repair of internal combustion engines. It was decommissioned at San Diego, California, in September 1947 and placed in the reserve fleet at Stockton, California. It was later moved at Suisun Bay and sold to Zidell Exploration for scrapping in October 1973. The ship received one battle star for its World War II service. Exposure to asbestos can lead to many different types of cancer, but the most common type is lung cancer. Once inhaled, these fibers can become embedded in the organ linings. This leads to irritation and inflammation over the years and a variety of medical diseases and conditions. If you are a veteran who served on the USS Cebu (ARG-6) and came to suffer from one of the asbestos-related diseases, we strongly advise you to take legal action as soon as possible.
