WASHINGTON, DC, March 31, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "About a week ago we talked to the family of a Navy Veteran with lung cancer and according to them he was too sick-and he did not want to go through the hassle of compensation. He worked in a navy destroyer's engine room in the 1960's and his exposure to asbestos was extreme. The family mentioned the Coronavirus and the upheaval of 2020 were his reason for not wanting to pursue compensation.
