So I have wondered more than a few times if my illness and those of other veterans were related to conditions experienced in the Gulf and/or Vaccines given to the military on deployments. I was deployed overseas 5 times. Not all to the Gulf but I had vaccines each time. Could this be a cumulative effect? I don't know. Could this be the law of unintended consequences? I don't know this either. But given the statistics I present here from the VA it is something definitely think about. The study clearly shows that there is a higher occurrence of chronic illnesses with between deployed and non-deployed veterans. If you are a veteran and are experiencing an illness check out the yellow highlight area in the photo snapshot of the article below:
