I am the fiance of Kenneth S. Fulton. Ken served on the USS Intrepid from 1967-1968 as legal officer and fire control officer. In January 2009, Ken was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Since then Ken has had 4 rounds of chemo and in June had his left lung removed (left EPP). Has anyone else who has served on the Intrepid (or their immediate family) been diagnosed with a pleural effusion of unknown origin or mesothelioma? Mesothelioma is insidious and often deadly within 4 months to 1 year of initial diagnosis despite its initial exposure of 20-30 years prior. Ken's bunk mate, Paul Neilly, did work in the engine room, but Paul has been deceased for a long time.

I contaced Bill White of the USS Intrepid Foundation in Jan09. It seems that the foundation is chartered to assist Vets from more current conflicts, but not those having served in Viet Nam.

Any information or assistance would be greatly appreciated. If you or a loved one has "pulmonary" or respiratory problems on unknown origin and worked in shipyards, served on ship, worked with break pads, or mined asbestos, please find your way to the International Mesothelioma Program at Brigham and Womens Hospital.

Thank you for your assitance.

Looking for anyone that was on the Intrepid the last time she crossed the equator after leaving Vietnam. We went across it twice on the way back to the states. The second time we didnít have any pollywogs onboard. Anyone that got a Shellback certificate on the way home! I need the Longitude thatís on the certificate. Capt V.A. Kellyís name would be on it. The date should be the last of 68 are early 69.
