There are many longshore and harbor workers who have been injured in Japan in a variety of circumstances.

Helping Injured Civilian Contractors Serving in Kuwait Receive DBA Care

Helping Injured Civilian Workers Receive DBA Protection in Diego Garcia

Diego Garcia is one of the few international military bases in which civilian contract personnel outnumber actual service members.
