got my share of ASBESTOS !! Every time the 5''/.38 or the 40mm AA guns went off,TONS of that NASTY STUFF came down on the bed clothing on our racks,foot lockers,our heads,and everywhere else...We slept in it,swallowed it,breathed it in the air.Those damn fine fibrous particles were EVERYWHERE! No one escaped it,including a former CO on my last tin can,the uss Basilone DD 824,who was reported to have passed from exposure from it.   Go figure..........
