2. 56%!! And that was only from Gulf War I
Over half of the Gulf War I vets disabled - this is beyond tragic.

What is worse, is that Gulf War I was just a few months long... How many have gone to the current Iraq War? And I know over half have gone for two tours of duty... how many will die from this war? 100%?

I'm sick over this...
