  • Veterans of the 1991 Gulf War had the distinction of serving their country in a military operation that wasa tremendous success, achieved in short order.

    But many also had the misfortune of developinglasting health problemsproblems that have for toolong been denied or trivialized.

    Addressing the serious and persistent health problems affecting Gulf War veterans as a result of their military service remains a national obligation.

    This obligation is made more urgent by the length of time veterans have waited for answers and assistance.
