CIB Badge

Of all the Medals Upon our Chest From the Battles and War we knew, The one admired as THE VERY BEST
Is the one of Infantry Blue. It is only a rifle upon a wreath,
So why should it mean so much?
It is WHAT IT TOOK TO EARN IT
That gives it that Magic Touch. To earn this special accolade
You faced the enemy's fire
Whether you survived or not
God dialed that one desired.
For those of us who served the cause
It is the
COMBAT INFANTRYMAN'S BADGE...
THAT REALLY TELLS THE STORY

70- Gulf War Syndrome for the Combat Infantrymen

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

For the combat infantrymen who fought in the Middle East during the first Gulf War in the 1990s, an article gives hope for treatment to those who are suffering from what is called the “Gulf War Syndrome.”

This episode will provide an audio narration of an article that describes a possible treatment. It is complete and unabridged.

This Article by Jeanette Steele provides the information for that hope.

Article by Jeanette SteeleAs you will hear in this audio episode, the cause of the physical disorders for these combat veterans could have been created by measures taken by the government to protect them from nerve gas agents, as well as pesticides that were used to prevent aggravations to the troops.

However, the good news is that no detailed proof other than the fact that the combat veteran had served in the region during the campaign would be needed.

You can read the text of the article and see the photo of Dr. Beatrice Golomb at this link:
