It's hard to believe that summer is over and school has begun. As we go on with our lives, let us remember all of those who serve past and present. August was one of the deadliest months for troops in Afghanistan. Let us keep the men and women who serve our nation in our hearts and minds.

It is an honor for MilitaryConnection.com to assist many wonderful non-profits in getting out their important messages. They make a difference in the lives of our troops, their families, and veterans.

We hope you enjoy this newsletter full of interesting and important information.

Asbestos News

Asbestos was one of the most common industrial materials put to use in the twentieth century. It has also proven to be one of the most lethal, as inhaling asbestos fibers can lead to a wide range of pulmonary problems such as asthma and asbestosis - and can also be the direct cause of mesothelioma.

For additional asbestos legal information, you may wish to consult with an attorney experienced in asbestos litigation. Please contact Asbestos News for a FREE consultation with one of our qualified asbestos attorneys who can help you understand your legal rights.
