USS S-41 (SS-146) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS S-41 was laid down by Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation in 1919 and during its activity, it won 4 battle stars and multiple awards, including the China Service Medal, the World War II Victory Medal and the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal. Veterans who served on this submarine are at high risk of developing a terrible disease such as lung cancer or mesothelioma, since asbestos might have been present in the wall insulation of the vessel. The USS S-41 was decommissioned in 1945 and sold for scrap one year later.
