USS Edsall (DE-129) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS Edsall (DE-129) was an Edsall-class destroyer escort laid down on July 2, 1942, and launched on November 1, 1942. It was commissioned on April 10, 1943, under Lt. Comdr. E. C. Woodward’s command with the hull number DE-129 and served in the U.S. Navy for 3 years until it was decommissioned on June 11, 1946. During its activity, the ship carried a complement of 209 people on board and had its main missions in Miami, Norfolk, Galveston, the Gulf of Mexico, New York, Argentia, Bermuda, Liverpool, Pearl Harbor, and Florida. After the decommissioning, the ship was struck from the Navy List on June 1, 1968, and sold for scrapping the following year. Between World War II and the late-1970s, Navy personnel sailed in closed quarters for months on end where asbestos fibers may be in circulation, as such, the Navy veterans were more exposed to asbestos than other branches of the military. If you believe you were exposed to asbestos while serving aboard the USS Edsall (DE-129), it is a good idea to seek legal advice as soon as possible so that you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
