USS O-2 (SS-63) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

As one of the 16 O-class submarines of the United States Navy, it served in both World War I and World War II. Since it was first decommissioned in 1931 and had such a long fate, being launched in 1918 and used until 1945, it is quite possible that this submarine contained asbestos at a certain point during its existence. The USS O-2 received several awards, including the American Campaign Medal and the World War II Victory Medal.
