Approximately 11,000 VFW members and their families are set to converge on July 20-24 in Louisville, Ky., as the VFW kicks off its 114th National Convention.
Events planned include a Health Fair, exhibits, the Gold Star Families Reception, Annual Memorial Service, committee meetings, workshops, and the grand Commander-in-Chief’s and National President’s Reception.
Sokolove Law will return again as a major sponsor of the event. Knowing that the link between veterans and mesothelioma is significant, we’ll spend time at the convention talking to veterans and spreading the word about the dangers of asbestos exposure, the symptoms of mesothelioma, and legal options.
For much of the 20th century, many manufacturers made asbestos-containing products that were used in the construction of U.S. Navy vessels and military bases – even though these companies knew that the material posed terrible health risks to anyone who inhaled it. In fact, approximately one-third of mesothelioma cases have been shown to involve Navy or shipyard exposures.
Sokolove Law thanks veterans for their service, and is committed to helping veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure during their time in the military or thereafter. We’ll be at Booth #114. If you’ll be in Louisville, stop by the booth, meet our team, and pick up helpful resources to better educate yourself or distribute at your post.
