VA releases new report on Gulf War addressing veterans' care, services

By Jim Vines | jim.helpingveterans@gmail.com

The Department of Veterans Affairs has released the second in a series of annual reports from its Gulf War Veterans Task Force, outlining how the department will address the concerns of veterans deployed during the Gulf War of 1990-91.

This report, which considered input from nearly 500 veterans who responded to the draft report, provides a road map for continued enhancements in the care and services provided to Gulf War Veterans.

The VA issued a draft version of this report for public comment on Oct. 1, 2011. During the 30-day comment period, the VA received over 450 comments through a special social media website created for this purpose, along with 25 other comments received through mail, e-mail and telephone calls. Feedback is critical to understand and serve the specific needs of Gulf War Veterans. This valuable input will guide how the VA’s assigned task forces communicates with veterans in the future.
