  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

I believe it's "Desert Shield/Desert Storm" and if you weren't there than don't make stupid remarks.

Not sure what dwragon means by Desert CALM Desert Storm but lets hear him out he is new.

Keep in mind that Hadit does not allow derogatory comments about any Veterans Service.

I think he means that the 're-review' is limited to only the 30,000 or so Veterans who served in theater and filed GWS claims, instead of all Gulf War Era Veterans.

getting back to this, email never showed it was answered.

Desert Sheild= troop buildup,

Desert Storm Desert Storm= actual 100 hour conflict, also known as Desert Sword/Desert Sabre

Desert Farewell=Liberation of Kuwait, troop drawdown, also known as Desert Calm

My orders say Operation Desert Calm in support of Operation Desert Storm (I still have them.)

Based upon the wording of the statement, it only applies to the 1oo hours.

This all started by a reporter misquoting what was said. The VA by law can not just reopen claim. The veteran will need to do it. As per the law and the CFR for gulf war veteran, this will apply to all veterans that was in the gulf from 1990 to today.

The VA chief of staff will be addressing this at the National Gulf War Resource Center heal and educational fair in Dallas TX. this Aug.

You can find our agenda on our website.

President NGWRC
