Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Survivor at Pearl Harbor dies of mesothelioma

A man from Billings, Montana who fought in Pearl Harbor when he was 19-years-old has now died of mesothelioma.

In December 1941, the teen was the one who sent the message that alerted the rest of the world that Pearl Harbor was under attack. He remembered the morning vividly. He was told by an officer to call in the message and that this was not a drill.

Now, the man had died of mesothelioma, which is a lung cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, heart and abdomen and is primarily caused from exposure to asbestos. Many navy veterans were exposed to asbestos when they were younger because it was used commonly then.
