The VA recognizes that PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and mTBI (Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries) are very serious problems affecting a high percentage of Gulf War Veterans so the VA is making efforts to find solutions to this problem.
According to the VA press release:
“Traumatic brain injury has been identified as the signature injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, and ensuring the best possible care for those affected service members is a high priority,” said Dr. Joel Kupersmith, Chief Research and Development Officer, Department of Veterans Affairs. “Likewise, PTSD is an ongoing concern for our Veterans, whether they experience it while serving in the military or many years later. Defining and developing potential treatments is critical to the health of our Veterans.”
It is important for any veteran, particularly Gulf War veterans, to find out whether they have received the compensation and benefits they are entitled to receive.
