N comments: I, we gulf war veterans need your help. there are still many problems we have with the VA system. We have no Center of Excellence. We need this type facilities in locations outside of Washington, DC like California, Texas, Oklahoma. Replace electronic dispalys signs in the lobbies of VA Hospitals which would direct vets to the Persian/Gulf War Regisry Exams. We need all VAMC to perform Persian/Gulf War Regisry Exams on spouses and children. We need to know why to number of claim filed for Undiagnosed Multisymthom illness approval is only 1% after 17 years. Please write this new board or attend their next meeting 24-25 Sept 2008. Veterans will be allowed to speak by phone, if requested prior to meeting date. Gulf War Illness exposures are so complicated it takes a team of medical and social service providers to care for the wounded and their families, says, a clinical psychologist with the Salt Lake City Veterans Affairs Heath Care System. The 14-member, independent panel will advise the Secretary and the department on the full range of health care and benefits needs of those who served in the conflict.
