USS S-31 (SS-136) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

Also built by Union Iron Works in 1918, the USS S-31 served the United States Navy for 13 years. It took part in World War II and won one battle star. Because it was decommissioned, asbestos might have been added to its walls as insulation, which represented a great health danger for those who were present on the submarine at the time. Finally decommissioned in 1945, it was subsequently sold for scrapping.
