Many Gulf War veterans across the U.S. have faced numerous health issues that have been called Gulf War Illness or Gulf War Syndrome. These conditions cause chronic fatigue, migraine headaches, joint pain, respiratory issues, memory recall problems, insomnia and dizziness.
Because of the widespread effect of these symptoms, the VA has established a policy for presumptive conditions that eliminate the need for a Gulf War Veteran to prove a connection between their military service and illnesses if the symptoms last for six months or longer. The VA will presume the problems are related to the Gulf War service time regardless of the cause.
What conditions does this include?
What constitutes Gulf War service?
The Gulf War encompasses active military duty in the Southwest Asia Theater starting with the first Gulf War in August 1990 and including Operation Iraqi Freedom 2003 – 2010 and Operation New Dawn 2010 – 2011. The geographical locations of service include: Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the neutral zone between Iraq and Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, the Gulf of Aden, the Gulf of Oman, the waters of the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea and the Red Sea and the airspace above these locations.
