Mesothelioma

The Mesothelioma Guide offers free veteran specific resources and support for patients and families.

The Mesothelioma Center provides a complete list of occupations, ships, and shipyards that could have put our Veterans at risk for developing asbestos-related diseases. In addition, they have thousands of articles regarding asbestos and mesothelioma have a veterans-specific section on their website in order to help inform about the dangers of asbestos exposure.

Naval Air Museum Barbers Point was established on January 19, 1999 at the former Naval Air Station Barbers Point, now known as Kalaeloa Airport (PHJR). The mission of the Museum is to save aircraft that are historical to NAS Barbers Point and other aircraft that are relevant to naval aviation history in Hawaii.

The Carrier blog is your gateway to the stories behind the Alameda Naval Air Station and Alameda Point.

"The roar of aircraft engines, silhouettes of naval vessels on the horizon, and the ubiquitous presence of uniformed personnel, were all part of life in Alameda between 1930 and 1997. For several decades I experienced all of these things firsthand as a resident of the Island City. In the relatively short period since the base closure in 1997, I find that fewer and fewer people recall what those times were like. Even fewer know the remarkable aviation legacy of Alameda Point before the opening of NAS Alameda in 1940.

I hope this blog, named after the original base newsletter, will provide a better understanding of the rich history associated with Alameda’s West End."
