: : : I am curious to know if anyone out there who was assigned to the 12th Avaition Brigade during the Gulf War has experienced any problems. I am also curious if the Veterans Administration has ever done anything to actually help anyone or if what they have failed to do for me over the past nine years is the norm for everyone.
: : I am also curious to what the VA is doing for others!
: : For my husband, they have given MISERY, Run Arounds, Ciprofloxacin, naproxen and claritin.
: : Is this how they are treating everyone? I sure am curious!!!!
: : Tammy; Sorry to hear that, but it's the norm. They did the same wonderful job for me, especially the MISERY and the run arounds. I've been trying to get them to do something for me for 9 years! with no luck. I have pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I will suffer with this for the rest of my life without help from the agency appointed to care for the needs of the veteran. Do you mind if I ask a question, was your husband in the 12th AVN Bde, if so, what unit? Maybe we shared a sand dune or at least a sandy "T" ration dinner.
My husband was in a different unit from you I believe. He was in "C Company 1st Battalion, 4th Marines"
He was deployed for 5 months to Kuwait this past year with his National Guard Reserve Unit. It seems his symptoms have worsen since his last deployment. He was in the Dr. office a week after getting home and he is steadily going down hill.
