For Military Veterans:

Soldiers, Factory Workers, Asbestos, and Cancer
From the 1940s right through to the mid-1970's the U.S., British and Canadian militaries used asbestos-containing materials to build ships, tanks, aircraft and more, putting service men and women at risk of mesothelioma, a dangerous lung cancer caused by breathing in asbestos fibres. Here are two educational guides about veterans and asbestos health:
