Last Update: August 19, 1997
Many veterans of the Gulf War have been experiencing a variety of physical symptoms, collectively called Gulf War illnesses. In response to veterans concerns, the Department of Defense (DOD) established a task force in June 1995 to investigate all possible causes. On November 12, 1996, responsibility for these investigations was assumed by the Investigation and Analysis Directorate (IAD), Office of the Special Assistant for Gulf War Illnesses (OSAGWI) which has continued to investigate the events that occurred at Al Jubayl, Saudi Arabia. Its interim report is contained here.
As part of the effort to inform the public about the progress of this effort, DOD is publishing on the Internet and elsewhere accounts related to possible causes of Gulf War illnesses, along with whatever documentary evidence or personal testimony was used in compiling these accounts.
