Gulf War II Illness

Gulf War II Illness

Monday's first hour guest, Gulf War Vets spokesperson Joyce Riley (gulfwarvets.com(1), gave an update on Gulf War II illnesses which she said bore similarities to Gulf War (I) Syndrome. She said there were a large number of soldiers with "non-hostile wounds" i.e. sickness not due to combat. Many of these cases were being called pneumonia, but Riley doubted this diagnosis. She suspects that exposure to depleted uranium and various vaccines could be what's making troops sick and in some cases dying.
