USS O-9 (SS-70) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS O-9 is another submarine which might have been contaminated with asbestos. Because it was decommissioned in 1931 and then launched again 10 years later, some adjustments could have been made to the inside of the vessel, so people who were present on the USS O-9 during World War II should be very cautious with regard to their health. The submarine was decommissioned in 1941 and subsequently foundered.
