The very first thing you need to do is get yourself set up for a Gulf War Physical and get your name on the National Registry in Washington DC. If you have questions on what and how to do all this call: 800-497-6261. They should be able to give you the information you need. DO NOT WAIT, you need to do this ASAP. You need to file a claim. It's a long process but don't give up because that's what they want you to do. Compensation is the last thing they want to give that all of you deserve. My best to you. Freda
