While this group has links to treatments and VA Benefit claims information as well as advocacy in claims; this information and link is provided solely for your information and not a personal endorsement for claims submittal.  I would assume this advocacy in claims also applies to widows created by Mesothelioma and Military Service.  As Veterans all know now the EPA and OSHA and safety issues from carcinogens whether antigenic (asbestos) or not, such as Dioxin or TCE, did not apply to the Military or DOD.
