    I've done lots of research on Gulf War Syndrome. My husband has all the symptoms but has of yet to go to the VA to get checked. Now that we have children, he really needs to be tested!! I even read in one article that it can be passed to spouses, scary!

    I receive periodic mailings from the VA about it, but I haven't had any symptoms myself, so I haven't been paying attention.

    I have done some reading up on the subject though, and I am not convinced there is a "syndrome". If you took a city with 500,000 people in it, you would find the same kind of maladies. The problem is that the symptoms are not the same and they are too broad.

    Now, having said all that, I don't mind spending a few million on research. If we can spend millions to find out how goldfish f*ck, we can spend a few million to find out if there really is anything to all this.

    LOL!! Too true!
    I don't know if it's all coincidence or not, but I do know that all the "symptoms" I've read about, he has. He never had them before GW1, and he still has them today.
