If a Gulf War Veteran experiences any of the symptoms included in this infographic, he or she may qualify for veterans (VA) disability compensation and benefits.

Veterans of the Persian Gulf War were exposed to multiple environmental hazards, including smoke from Kuwaiti oil well fires; pesticide/insecticide use; nerve gas release, ingestion of pyridostigmine bromide tablets daily as a nerve gas antidote, and high levels of harmful particulate matter.

Symptoms can include weight loss, cardiovascular ailments, muscle or joint pain, headaches, neurological problems, insomnia, fatigue, and more.
