Gulf War Illness Update
Gulf War Vet advocate Joyce Riley appeared in the first hour of Saturday's show to discuss the mysterious illnesses affecting troops who fought in the two Gulf Wars. According to Riley, about 80% of Gulf War I veterans are suffering with sicknesses that can be traced to their service in the Middle East. Troops deployed in the current War in Iraq are developing serious neurological problems linked to depleted uranium, Riley continued. This may also help explain the alarming homocide rate among returning soldiers, she added.
