USS England (DLG/CG-22) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS England (DLG/CG-22) was a Leahy-class guided-missile cruiser laid down on October 4, 1960, and launched on March 6, 1962. It was commissioned on December 7, 1963, as DLG-22 and served in the U.S. Navy for 31 years until it was decommissioned on January 21, 1994. On June 30, 1975, the ship was reclassified as a guided-missile cruiser with the hull number CG-22. During its activities, the ship carried a complement of 400 people on board and had its main missions in every major point from Vietnam to Desert Storm. After decommissioning, the ship was struck from the Navy List on January 21, 1994, and scrapped in 2004. If you served in the U.S. Navy and participated in duties such as the construction, overhaul, or repair of the ships, the health problems you face today may be related. Asbestos claims after the death of a loved one can provide surviving family members with compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of income, loss of emotional support, and more. Proof of asbestos exposure in the service is necessary for service-connected disability compensation.
