Medical Malpractice Center. We are a new group dedicated to providing vital information, tips, and resources to individuals and family members affected by medical negligence.
Medical malpractice is professional negligence by a healthcare provider in which the treatment provided falls below the proper standard of practice in the healthcare community. In these cases, this neglect causes injury or death to the patient. Doctors are the third leading cause of death in the United States behind heart disease and cancer, and currently it is estimated that in the US alone over 225,000 people die each year from medical negligence. Our team believes that every individual who has experienced this neglect should have access to the best information and support available.
Addiction in the Military. Life in the military is, by necessity, a regimented affair. There are rules to follow concerning almost every single part of life, from haircuts and clothing to wake times and daily activities. Personal freedom and choice are deeply restricted, as people in the service are expected to put the needs of the group above the needs of the self.
Not surprisingly, illicit drug use is remarkably low among people in the military.
In fact, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, about 12 percent of civilians are monthly users of illicit drugs, while only 2.3 percent of military members can say the same.
When life is restricted, few people break free to abuse drugs, but that doesn’t mean substance abuse is foreign to those who are members of the military right now, or those who have been participants in the past. In fact, some say that there are many people in the military with addictions, but they might keep their woes hidden, due to concerns about reprisal. This website offers links to resources that military members may access for help.

Mesothelioma Fund. Asbestos exposure, a known cause of mesothelioma, was unavoidable for millions of veterans, whether they were deployed overseas or working in the U.S. Up to 30 percent of all diagnosed mesothelioma cases are veterans. Our mission is to help educate all veterans on the dangers of asbestos exposure and to also help provide service members suffering from mesothelioma the most up-to-date and accurate information on treatments, clinical trials and other patient resources. Our goal is to partner with organizations supporting veterans to spread awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure.
Veterans are at a high risk for developing mesothelioma because asbestos was used so frequently in so many military applications. It was nearly impossible to avoid contact with this dangerous mineral.
Asbestos could be found in housing, sleeping, and work areas. It was used in clothing, concrete, and vehicles. At one point, everything from electrical wiring to buildings on bases contained pounds of asbestos. Military leaders regarded the natural mineral for its insulating abilities as well as its resistance to heat, chemicals, and fire. Asbestos use wasn’t curtailed until the mid 1970's, long after millions of soldiers and their families had been exposed. Veterans who served from the 1930's through the 1980's are at high risk. Even today, those who serve overseas are at risk.
It was easy for any serviceman or woman, especially members of the U.S. Navy, to be exposed to asbestos. In the 1930's through the 1970's, Navy leaders required that it be used on every sea vessel in an effort to modernize the fleet. During World War II alone, more than 6,000 ships were built in shipyards in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, and Seattle, just to name a few. All of the ships were heavily insulated with asbestos in all parts of the ship.
It wasn’t until the late 1970s and early 1980s that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) started controlling asbestos use and putting restrictions on it. Even though there are limits on asbestos mining in the U.S., asbestos is imported into this country by the ton. It is still widely used in all branches of the military, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. There are no laws outlawing asbestos use.
