Veterans for Common Sense

Veterans for Common Sense (VCS) was formed in August 2002 as a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization by war veterans who believe that we, the people of the United States of America, are most secure when our country is free, strong, and responsibly engaged with the world. Our mission, based on the pragmatic ideals of the American patriot Thomas Paine, is to raise the unique and powerful voices of veterans so that our military, veterans, freedom, and national security are protected and enhanced, for ourselves and for future generations.

This is a special update. After 16 years of intense fighting, Gulf War veterans now have answers -- scientific evidence -- that they were exposed to chemical warfare agents in 1991 and that those agents caused serious medical problems.

Today, May 19, at 7:30 PM, Paul Sullivan, Executive Director of Veterans for Common Sense, will appear on Air America.

He will discuss new scientific research a linking chemical warfare agent exposures near Khamisiyah, Iraq, on March 10, 1991, with brain damage among U.S. Gulf War veterans.

In 1996, Sullivan called Khamisiyah "The World's Largest Friendly Fire Incident," as U.S. troops destroyed a chemical arms depot and exposed more than 100,000 fellow service members fighting in Desert Storm.

Here is important background:

Two days ago, the New York Times reported on the new scientific research.

In 1996, the New York Times reported how the Presidential Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses condemned the Pentagon's failures to assist Gulf War veterans.

And in 1997, the New York Times again reported on how 100,000 soldiers were exposed, yet the Pentagon did not know why so many veterans were ill.

Veterans for Common Sense will continue the fight for our Gulf War, Iraq War, and Afghanistan war veterans so we have answers on toxic exposures, including anthrax vaccines, PB pills, depleted uranium, Lariam, oil well fire pollution, and other health concerns.

Thank you, Veterans for Common Sense
