VA continues to provide services for Gulf War vets

By Jim Vines | jim.helpingveterans@gmail.com

It has now been 22 years since the start of the 1990-91 Gulf War, which comprises the deployment and combat operations known as Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Almost 700,000 service members were deployed during this period.

Those veterans have enrolled in the VA health care system and have made over 2 million outpatient visits for health care and had over 20,000 inpatient admissions in the VA health care system.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has not forgotten the service and dedication of Gulf War veterans. The VA continues to provide high quality health care and benefits to them while the VA invests in research that helps them understand and treat Gulf War Veterans’ illnesses.
