USS Logan (APA-196) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS Logan (APA-196) was a Haskell-class attack transport laid down on May 27, 1944, and launched on September 19, the same year. It was commissioned for the first time on October 14, 1944, under Comdr. Joseph H. Foley’s command, with the hull number APA-196 and it served in the US Navy for 6 years until it was decommissioned for the last time on June 14, 1955. During its activity, the ship carried a complement of 536 people on board and had its main missions in Santa Barbara, Okinawa, San Francisco, Guam, Japan, Pearl Harbor, and Saipan. After the decommissioning, the ship was struck from the Navy List on July 1, 1960, and scrapped. For the services brought to the country during World War II, the USS Logan received 2 battle stars and another 1 for the Korean service. Navy veterans may file a claim with the Veterans Affairs for a service-connected condition. They can file an application for benefits, along with supporting medical documentation proving they are suffering from lung cancer or any other asbestos-related disease. A claim for VA benefits should also be supported with evidence of service records, ship records, deck logs, and any other documentation available to help prove the validity of the claim.
