Gulf War Syndrome is real

A congressionally mandated report has concluded that Gulf War syndrome is a legitimate physiological illness, and NOT just a symptom of psychological distress.

According to a Reuters article, the panel found two possible causes: pills given to troops as a vaccination against nerve gas, and pesticides used heavily during the war.

This is great news for veterans who have been struggling to get treatment since 1991. Only took 17 years.
