American Legion Riders Post 1340

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma



My name is Rachel Gilner and I’m the Veteran Liaison for  While I was browsing through a number of Veterans sites I came across your website and was very impressed by the information you have listed.

Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening illnesses that are a result of exposure to asbestos, a material that was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, products, and ships primarily because of its resistance to fire.  Unfortunately, asbestos-related diseases are not always recognized by the VA, which is why we’ve dedicated a portion of our website with information that can assist those affected by asbestos-related diseases in order to help them file for VA benefits.

My grandfather was a staff sergeant in the American Embassies year all over the world, so I am extremely passionate about spreading awareness to our country’s leaders.  Because so many veterans visit your site, I thought that you may be interested in helping to educate our nation’s veterans about the dangers of asbestos exposure by linking to our website from your resources page at I'm available by e-mail at  With your help, we can save some lives.  Thanks again.

Best Regards,

Rachel Gilner
