Why this petition matters
In 1991 The Gulf War began, hundreds of thousands of veterans have been stricken with diagnosed AND undiagnosed illness. Even though the mission of the war, to free Kuwait from Iraq was accomplished in record time, many of these ill veterans are being ignored and left out of legislation concerning post 9/11/01.
it is time to acknowledge these veterans are suffering. The multiple parades across the country celebrating this astonishing victory have done nothing to secure these veterans are not falling through the cracks.
We are asking for this to CHANGE. Congress, Dept of Defense, and Veterans Affairs must include the 1991 GULF WAR veterans, whom have been exposed to multiple hazardous conditions, not limited to: 1. Sarin Nerve Agent, 2. Burn Pits 3. Anthrax Vaccines (commonality with non deployed ERA troops), etc.
This problem has gone on for 30 years, much as the Vietnam and earlier veterans often had to make their voices heard, it is past time for the leaders to stop dividing veterans and provide equitable inclusive treatment and benefits to all.
Thank you for taking time to read, sign, and support America’s honorable men and women.
