Update (Jan 13): The VA had told us, under the Freedom of Information Act, that it cannot find studies on asbestos exposure among Korean War and Korea service vets. We don't buy it and will appeal.

We're researching exposure to asbestos among veterans who served in Korea after and during the Korean War. This includes obtaining military records about veterans exposed to asbestos; the use of asbestos tile in housing units and common areas; removal of asbestos; and information from mesothelioma lawsuits and asbestos lawsuits.
If you have information about asbestos use in Korea; veterans with symptoms of asbestos exposure from Korea, including but not limited to asbestos in the lung; or cases of lung cancer caused by asbestos or mesothelioma from Korean service, please contact us at producer (at)
For information on exposure to Agent Orange suffered by DMZ vets, click here.

  • What is asbestos?
