I was answering a post earlier in regards to brain tumors and it reminded me of this topic and I would like to see what anyone has to say or if they have dealt with this situation. My children's father was a Desert Storm vet. He began to grow a very large brain tumor not long after his return (though it was not seriously dignosed until 2002). It was very slow growing and affected his whole left frontal lobe. It was a very rare type of tumor and it did eventually lead to his death in 20004. Now, I received news that the military is conducting studies on the large number of brain tumors experienced by Desert Storm vets. We OKed releasing his medical records to an independent Study organization. So, do you know of any DS vets who have experienced tumors? Are you convinced that something was done to or around the vets during that time that contributed and lastly, is the military responsible??
