I recently penned an article, “Why are our Gulf War veterans dying?” Some of the comments touched my heart, and I want to update the article and discuss another serious consequence of those wars, the 1991 Gulf War, and the Gulf War II — wars that have been and continue to be fought against our own military by an incompetent and corrupt Department of Defense. But I also want to condemn the entire U.S. government for its level of arrogance and feeling that we are a nation that is above law. It seems that when we go to war, there are two enemies: the one we face on the battlefield and the one sending us off to war. We as a nation must stand up for our forgotten heroes. Let us be the wind beneath their broken wings.
