The USS Weber (DE-675/APD-75) was a Buckley-class destroyer escort laid down on February 22, 1943, and launched on May 1, the same year. It was commissioned on June 30, 1943, under Comdr. Rollo N. Norgaard’s command with the hull number DE-675 and served in the U.S. Navy for 4 years until it was decommissioned in January 1947. During its activity, it carried a complement of 213 men on board and had its main missions in Provincetown, Bermuda, Boston, Derry, Venezuela, British Isles, Ireland, North Africa, Gibraltar, Palermo, Oran, and Bizerte. After the decommissioning, the ship was struck from the Navy List on June 1, 1960. Navy personnel aboard navy ships built in the mid-20th century were constantly exposed to airborne asbestos fibers no matter what they were doing. If you built, repaired, or served onboard the USS Weber (DE-675/APD-75) and have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, you can receive financial compensation without having to file a civil lawsuit against the companies that negligently manufactured or sold the asbestos products that caused your health condition.
