Gulf War Syndrome

“Gulf War syndrome (GWS), also known as Gulf War illness (GWI), is a chronic multi-symptom disorder affecting returning military veterans and civilian workers of the 1990–91 Gulf War.[1][2][3] A wide range of acute and chronic symptoms have been linked to it, including fatiguemuscle paincognitive problems, rashes and diarrhea.[4] Approximately 250,000[5] of the 697,000 U.S. veterans who served in the 1991 Gulf War are afflicted with enduring chronic multi-symptom illness, a condition with serious consequences.[6] From 1995 to 2005, the health of combat veterans worsened in comparison with non-deployed veterans, with the onset of more new chronic diseases, functional impairment, repeated clinic visits and hospitalizationschronic fatigue syndrome-like illnesspost-traumatic stress disorder, and greater persistence of adverse health incidents.[7] According to a report by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan may also suffer from the syndrome.[8]

The above information comes from:

We at the John Galt Program for Investigative Studies (JGPIS), through our research into the Wesleyan Case, uncovered information concerning a handful of war profiteers from the Gulf War that may be responsible for exposing our service men and women to chemical agents that could be responsible for their illness called Gulf War Syndrome.

JGPIS is currently reaching out to all veteran’s groups to share the information that we have uncovered and to ask if those agencies would be willing to help us expose those those who left our veteran’s exposed to sarin gas.

If you stumble upon our page and we have not contacted your agency yet, please feel free to give us a call at 540-645-1050.
