30% of Gulf War Veterans Still Experience Harmful Nervous System Illness

Gulf War Illness

In August 1990, former President George H.W. Bush began Operation Desert Storm in response to the Iraqi invasion and occupation of Kuwait.
More than 650,000 U.S. military personnel would join the Gulf War over the next year before this Middle Eastern conflict formally ended on July 31, 1991.
Sadly, Gulf War illness continues to affect 30% of those veterans today, decades later.
