Destroyer Escorts

Destroyer Escorts

A little over 450 destroyer escorts were built by the United States. Their primary function was to support the U.S. Merchant Marines during World War 2. During that time they escorted merchant marine ships, provided protection from aircraft attacks and were used in anti-submarine warfare. Asbestos exposure was a constant threat for those who were stationed on these ships especially those who worked in the close confinement of high heat areas such as engine and boiler rooms. As a result, veterans who served on destroyer escorts may be at risk of developing mesothelioma.
