USS Nitro (AE-2) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

USS Nitro was an ammunition ship laid down on March 19, 1919 and launched on 16th of December, the same year. It served in the US Navy for 24 years from the day of commissioning, April 1, 1921, and until it was decommissioned on November 30, 1945. Comdr. R.W. Vincent was in command of the ship, which had the main purpose of carrying ammunition and explosives for the Battle Fleet. It executed three cruises from the East Coast to the West Coast through the Caribbean and the Panama Canal. It also carried ammunition, supplies and men from the West Coast to Pearl Harbor, Manila and Shanghai, as well as to Marines in Nicaragua during 1928 and 1930. During the Normandy invasion, the ship operated from Belfast, Plymouth and Rosneath in Scotland in order to supply heavy projectiles for the battleships. For its entire service brought to the US Navy during the World War II, the ship received one battle star.
