GULF WAR: The Terrible War After the War and the Enduring...

As we look at twenty years since the Gulf War 1990-91/Operation Desert Storm the writer has to wonder have we made headway? The writer wants the President, the VA, the DOD, the legislators both US Senators and Representatives to hear from the veterans that counted on our government to do the right thing morally and ethically. If we had really been tuned into the history of the veterans of World War 1, Atomic Veterans, and Agent Orange Veterans we would not have been so deceived. Maybe the All Volunteer Force would not have been reality. Maybe a draft would still be in affect. But the troops felt it a DUTY, A Sacred Duty to serve their country. They were well educated and trained. Many were college graduates, almost all had completed high school and had a beginning on college level education, in total a different profile than the Vietnam Veterans. Many had families with military traditions and service.

Caring for Camp Lejeune Veterans Act of 2011

Resolution Desert Storm Veterans 20 Year Anniversary(11-10)

Congressman Manzullo, stood up for Ill Desert Storm Veterans, this author worked with his staff along with a number of other gulf war veteran advocates. Many hours were spent on the hill in DC and it took several sessions of congress to get the measure passed into law. His staff truly worked hand in hand with the veteran's advocates and held monthly meetings and updates on the final push. This is the bill that became law that listed each of the symptoms of gulf war illness that should be compensated!

Government Funding on Gulf War Illness Research- DOD CDMRP

So here is the latest information IT IS STILL TO BE DETERMINED How Much For Sure For Gulf War Illness Research Program at DOD-CDMRP For FY2011. IT never hurts to keep your voice and written words in front of your US Representatives and US Senators and for you to share those to as many elected officials in all the parties from local to State to National! And to get the news of that out in all ways possible!!! In a year with continuing resolutions, partisan battles, and omnibus bill that runs in the thousands of pages that throw everything into the soup when they cannt get the 13 funding bills through in any form of clean method. Well, lets us say it is not a clean recipe at that point, behind the scenes cooks can be known to help or hinder. Even when a number of us advocates and those on the hill ie staffers are doing everything to track and monitor. AS the old song goes Behind closed doors......You never can tell where a secret supporter, Santa, Cook can either spice up the recipe or make it go sour.

Sarcoidosis in Gulf War Veterans 1990-91

Gulf War Veterans another Diagnosed illness that we at VT have seen previously is Sarcoidosis. WE need to again step forward and make contact and tract our diagnosed illnesses, just like we have done in the pass with ALS, MS, Brain Cancer, Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, Prostrate Cancer, Respiratory illnesses, Cardiac Illness, GI illnesses,Leischmanasis, Thyroid Dysfunctions, ME/CFS, Fibromylagia, Lyme Disease, and Diabetes to name a few. WE need to move forward and network again with national organizations to combine our strength and become more strong in numbers and find civilians that care!

The Crime Against Veterans of the Gulf War 1990-91 Plays Forward

Update on Depleted Uranium Internationally. There has been work being done internationally while the media ignores the issue. Here is the news contained below that doesn't appear in mainstream media coverage. There is concern but medical research and peer reviewed journal articles seem to take decades, while veterans die without help, denial of compensation, denial of a proactive medical system to perform diagnostic tests in a full screening in a timely manner to catch health problems and to diagnose cancers at the earliest date possible and to monitor health status for other diseases related to respiratory and cardiac and neuroimmune problems.

The Dream Nightmare Act: Put A Stop To This Now

The Dream Act should stay a Dream because as it stands it is a nightmare of too many calories in this bill that will be up for the vote shortly. I do not like to see this as a party issue but it seems like that is all that our elected officials see. I look at cost factors, impacts on our system that is at the breaking point ie Health, Education, impacts on our current native born citizens, impacts on our adult children that battle for admission to colleges and post graduate education that will have to compete against this group of illegals seeking amensty and more! I look at priorities and resources for the citizens we currently need to protect! Can we do more? Is this the right time? Do we have other priorities? What is really hiding here? Is this party tactics to control future elections?

The Cover Up continues on DU- Canada and US Connections

So many questions and no answers! Why are the experts on DU not allowed to testify themselves? Why no hearings focusing on this continuing health problem? Where is COL, Dr Durakovic and why has he not been allowed to testify on the hill in DC? Why does every piece of legislation that has DU in it ignored on the hill in DC?
