DEAR USS AJAX CREWMEMBER

Comments: Dear : USS AJAX AR-6 Crewmen:

I found your name on a list of USS AJAX crew members on the USS AJAX Ship's Roster internet website. Our firm represents the family of Mr. Richard Boucher who served with you on board the USS AJAX from 1953 to 1956 as a Boiler tender.

I am writing this letter to ask for your help. Mr. Richard Boucher recently passed away. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a form of cancer that the doctors agree was caused by Mr. Richard Boucher's occupational exposure to asbestos. His family is now involved in a wrongful death asbestos lawsuit, against the manufacturers, suppliers and civilian contractors. We are not pursuing the government in this action.

Unfortunately, Mr. Richard Boucher's family does not know the names of all of the various asbestos containing materials and the equipment that were used on the USS AJAX. You may remember asbestos-containing products, such as:

-asbestos pipe insulation,
-asbestos cement/mud
-asbestos canvas or cloth
-asbestos block boiler insulation,
-valve packing,
-pump and flange gaskets,
-interior boiler refractory,
-floor tile,
-asbestos insulated wire, electrical panels with Bakelite insulators,
-laminate asbestos board for bulkhead panels and ceiling panels

Do you remember any of the brand names:
-Kaiser V-Block Refractory, used in the boilers
-Eagle-Picher,
-Johns Manville,
-Combustion Engineering, Foster Wheeler, Babcock and Wilcox, Cleaver-Brooks, Riley Stoker boilers
-Flexitalic, John Crane and Garlock packing and gasket products.
-Union Carbide Bakelite electrical insulation board, electrical components
-Westinghouse, Micarta covered asbestos bulkhead panels
-Cutler-Hammer, Square-D, Westinghouse, Alan-Bradley, and General Cable electrical components, switch gear, control panels, cable and wire.
-GE and Westinghouse Turbines

Do you remember which repair yards the USS AJAX put into during the time you served on board this ship. Finally, if you recall any of the civilian contractors that worked on the USS AJAX when she was repaired or overhauled please contact me.

Any information you can provide regarding this ship is extremely important to Mr. Richard Boucher's family. Please contact me at my email address mbasques@braytonlaw.com; call me at (800) 765-7778 extension 342, or write me at Richard Boucher Family, c/o Brayton * Purcell, 222 Rush Landing Road, Novato, CA 94945. I thank you in advance for your help.

Sincerely,

Mike Basques
Investigator
