To get your husband's name on the "Gulf War Registry" you have to call Washington D.C. It's very important that you do this right away. The Registry is mainly for one reason and that is if the Government EVER decides to compensate (pay) the Gulf War Veteran's who are sick, they will only pay those on the Registry. Not too many people know this. I have a toll free number I can give you if you would like to e-mail me because I'm not sure I can give the number to you here. They will also give you other information on what he should do, like file a claim which is a very long process but you can't give up. He's entitled if he's ill. My husband and I have been fighting his claim for almost 3 yrs. But we refuse to give up and the ones who hang in there are the ones who (in my opinion) will be taken care of. If I don't here from you, I wish you the best. Freda!
