Gulf War Veterans: The VA Takes Important First Steps
Wednesday 31 March 2010
by: Paul Sullivan and Anthony Hardie, t r u t h o u t | Op-Ed
Last week, the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) officially recognized several diseases as linked with deployment to the 1991 Gulf War.
As Gulf War veterans, we applaud the VA’s proposed new regulations that streamline access to disability benefits for Gulf War, Iraq war and Afghanistan war veterans.
More importantly, the VA’s new policy opens access to urgently needed free VA health care for the lingering, disabling health outcomes of these terrible diseases.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
