  1. Hi,

    I came across your Franklin Military and Veteran Affairs page while searching for veteran’s organizations to reach out to about mesothelioma awareness. Thanks so much for all that you and your hard-working university are offering for those who are in need of the resources. My grandfather served in Korea, and I know that if he were still alive today, how appreciative he would be of a site like yours.

    I contacted you because I’m the Director of Outreach at the Mesothelioma Veterans Center. My goal is to reach veterans and their families who have been affected by mesothelioma and connect them to our website which offers free veteran specific resources and support. 1/3 of all mesothelioma patients are veterans, since 2004 over 5,000 veterans have died from mesothelioma. The reason this cancer targets so many veterans is because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past. A large part of our mission is to help spread awareness to veterans and their families.

    I noticed you have a link for veteran related resources, here – http://engage.franklin.edu/omva/resources/ . I think our Veteran’s Page would be a great addition and benefit to your users. Do you mind including our link as well?

    Best,
    Brian
