The USS Reprisal (CV-35) was an Essex-class aircraft carrier of World War II. Due to hostilities ending in the Pacific Theater marking the end of World War II, and a number of other veteran Essex-class carriers being available, the construction of the USS Reprisal (CV-35) was canceled on August 12, 1945, when it was about 52.3% completed. The ship was launched later that year to clear the slipway and perform a bomb damage assessment. Plans were drawn up to complete the ship as an attack carrier, but the plan was ultimately dropped and it was sold to Boston Metals Co., Baltimore, Maryland for scrap in 1949. Any ship built before 1980, may contain asbestos. The amount of asbestos found onboard depends on several factors, including where the ship was built. A series of studies proved the dangers of asbestos, but many of them were hushed up by corporations. If you believe you were exposed to asbestos while serving aboard the USS Reprisal (CV-35), you may be able to seek the various options you have to recover compensation. You can use this compensation to help cover the costs of care, lost wages, pain, and suffering.
