DESERT STORM TAPS MAY09
Still being sure we catch all of the May data before I post the JUNE 09 Report.
AS we Remember 65 years ago and D Day. WE must never ever forget Veterans that served after WW2 and yes before WW2. Our Veterans of all Conflicts must be remembered.
I struggle to find all the Gulf War Operation Desert Storm Veterans 90-91. Why? Being a nurse that was there and knowing that these veterans have not been diagnosed or compensated for the exposures they experienced while just simply doing their duty as asked by their country’s leaders.
Salute……….21 Gun Salute…….Taps…….
