We are among the most successful Veterans' Organizations in the United States advocating for veterans affected by Gulf War Illness (GWI). We formed shortly after the Persian Gulf War of 1991. Our work has been critical in establishing the rights, treatments, and benefits which these veterans have access to now. Our work is far from done. GWI is still poorly understood and incurable.
It is our mission to help all veterans who served in the US armed forces from 1989 to the present day. In addition to our long focus on GWI and other chronic multisymptom illnesses which affect veterans, we provide resources and support for veterans affected by traumatic brain injury, post traumatic stress disorder, and infectious diseases.
