The typical ways a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma could have been exposed to asbestos from the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate:

While the Veteran was assigned to a shipyard for a retrofit, overhaul, or maintenance and had to stay on board a ship or submarine to assist the shipyard workers with the repairs.
* While assigned to a navy ship or submarine’s engine room/propulsion center, as a boiler technician, as a member of a maintenance crew, or as an electrician, plumber, welder, pipefitter or shipfitter.
* Significant asbestos exposure may have taken place while preparing their ship for deployment and/or cleaning up their ship or submarine after a deployment.
* While assigned to a repair crew while their ship or submarine was at sea.

High-risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include the US Navy, shipyards, power plants, public utilities, manufacturing factories, chemical plants, oil refineries, mines, smelters, pulp and paper mills, aerospace manufacturing facilities, offshore oil rigs, demolition construction work sites, railroads, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops.

With lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure the lung cancer may not show up until decades after the exposure.

States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware.

However, a US Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Georgia, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, Washington, Oregon or Alaska.
