RE-EVALUATION OF HEALTH STATUS OF SPOUSES AND CHILDREN OF PERSIAN GULF WAR VETERANS.
Since 2004 report was out .Spouses and Children issues are stopped from RAC or Task Force Report.
VA Environmental Agents Service examined "Only" 1,380 spouses and Children as of August 2002.(VA-053 VA Environmental Agents Service Spouses and Children Program )
None of Spouses had miscarriage or stillbirth where Mysteriously Never got involved this survey. (Pregnancy outcomes among U.S. Gulf War veterans: a population-based survey of 30,000 veterans.(2001)
Therefore,I don't believe that these numbers and these reports to be correct. I believe that these issues need further review and researched.

I agree with Denise. Spouses and other family members need to be looked at and tracked.
If the VA was to re-evaluate the children of Gulf War veterans, I assure them, the numbers are higher. I did not even know about GWI until a few years ago. 14 years ago at the age of 2 my daughter had an unknown pathogen eat her bone in her leg. The children’s hospital could not identify it. They swore we had to have taken her out of the country. She had never left the country nor had I, although her father fought in Gulf War. My son was born with neurological problems that are also unknown to the cause. I have spoken with multiple families that have children suffering with unknown medical issues. The spouses are also suffering with symptoms of GWI. I personally would not volunteer my children for testing or research purposes, but believe their medical expenses or therapy costs should be 100% covered by the government.

My son was born in 1992 and every since that time my ex wife has tested him every year with results that could only be explained from me being in Gulf War. I have same readings showing up on my testing over the years as well. I already have documented evidence for them to review.

My children are having medical problems that I would for the VA to examine..
If theyre not recognizing us then what makes anyone think they will do anything for our families? This is more than likely a ploy to get our families involved so the gooberment can see if its bioweapon is working like it should! so offer up your little ones and curse them with all the same BS test that theyve done on me for ten years im sure that will help everyone!

Need VA to publish a way that veteran spouses that have reported illnesses with similar symptoms to be registered. Also children of veterans who are having birth defects, or symptoms of illnesses just like GWI need a way to be registered and records submitted. A large number of veterans feel there were biological components and this definitely needs further review. WE had a law that was set up for that but no one worked to extend the deadline and set up a registry to include that information and data.
