This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.
Let's hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who
served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country. The link below is a
virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names,
bio's and other information on our lost heroes. Those who
remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look
them up on this site.
First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city
and the names will appear. Then click on their names. It should
show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals.
Pass the link on to others, as many knew wonderful people whose names are listed.

Dangers of Asbestos
During the better part of the 20th century, the United States Armed Forces used asbestos in the production of many types of ships ,
buildings and vehicles, thus exposing countless soldiers and workers to
this terrible mineral. At its peak, asbestos was used predominantly in
factories during World War II and many U.S. veterans
suffered from mesothelioma as a result, because the harmful effects of
asbestos were not known until decades later. Even now, as asbestos use
and production has declined significantly, many veterans could still be
afflicted, unaware of the early symptoms of mesothelioma cancer.
Another web page on the Dangers of Asbestos
Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening
illnesses that are a result of exposure to asbestos, a material that
was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, products, and
ships because of its resistance to fire. We have created a
veterans-specific section on our website in order to help inform about
the dangers of asbestos exposure.
Information. Answers. Help. Every mesothelioma patient needs quality
resources and support, and The Mesothelioma Center provides all of this
through a number of free programs. These resources are yours for the
Veterans and Mesothelioma
1/3 of all mesothelioma patients are veterans, and approximately 6,000
veterans afflicted with this asbestos-caused cancer died between 1999
and 2005 alone. The reason this cancer targets so many veterans is
because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past.
Part of our mission is to spread awareness to veterans and their
families. Our website offers free veteran specific resources and
support for patients and families.
Mesothelioma.net provides mesothelioma patients with free resources, support, education,
and referrals to experienced mesothelioma doctors.
We are a current sponsor of the American Cancer Society, MD Anderson
Cancer Center, Make a Wish Foundation and the National Patient Travel
We've also established a scholarship for high school and college students
that will help further educate students of this rare cancer.
