Welcome

Navy Amphibious Ships

The U.S. Navy’s amphibious ships are designed to deliver large tanks and other heavy equipment onto a beach without the use or piers or cranes. At the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the Navy had no ships in its fleet capable of performing this task. Following the outbreak of World War II, however, the Navy went about building thousands of these ships, helping to deliver tanks, troops and military supplies during the D-Day landing at Normandy Beach and to islands throughout the Pacific theater.

Naval veterans who served aboard naval amphibious ships may have been exposed to asbestos used in parts or insulation onboard these vessels, Asbestos exposure can lead to a number of deadly diseases, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural diseases.

Here is a list of some U.S. Navy amphibious ships which may have been contaminated with asbestos:
