USS Krishna

The USS Krishna was a repair ship decommissioned in 1971. Built using asbestos, she and other Navy repair ships exposed many veterans to the carcinogenic mineral fiber.

U SS Krishna (ARL 38) (ex-LST 1149) – Navy Repair Ship

Classification: Repair Ship

Status: Disposed of through the Security Assistance Program (SAP), foreign military sale or lease

Fleet: Pacific

Launch Date: 5/25/1945
Commission Date: 12/3/1945
Decommission Date: 9/15/1971

USS Krishna earned twelve battle stars for her service during the Vietnam War.

Repair ships are the single most important reason that other ships in the fleet are able to continue operating. Repair ships rendezvous with damaged vessels at sea and perform on site repairs, which allow the damaged ship to continue its cruise without stopping at a naval shipyard for repairs. Quite frequently, repair vessels were able to keep other ships afloat and save thousands of lives in the process. Unfortunately, while crewmembers of repair vessels were fixing other ships, they were being exposed to asbestos from boilers, piping, and ventilation systems.

Anyone who served on a repair ship should speak with their doctor regarding asbestos related diseases, such as Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer, and the treatment options available.
