Newsletter Archive – Gulf War Review

VA's Environmental Health Program publishes the Gulf War Review newsletters, providing information especially for Veterans who served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

Note: With the September 1997 issue, the name of this publication changed from "Persian Gulf Review" to "Gulf War Review" to be sensitive to individuals of Persian ethnicity. Veterans who participated in Operation Desert Shield/Storm are now referred to as Gulf War Veterans rather than Persian Gulf War Veterans.
