What we do

Veterans Disability Benefits Claims 

We have a free to download guide for all veterans. We ask that you work with a good VSO and share this guide with them.

Many veterans receive injuries in the line of duty which impact quality of life later on. These veterans are due compensation to account for lost earning power and reduced quality of life. This is true whether the injury is visible or not. Our Self-Help Guide is the best independent, free resource anywhere for veterans with Gulf War Illness and other invisible injuries who seek help with the complex claims process of the Veterans Benefits Administration. You may also contact us for help and browse the rest of this site for answers specific to your situation.

Research and Treatment 

Our Executive Director, Jim Bunker, represents the interests of Veterans as a member of the Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses, a congressionally mandated committee which advises the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs on research which may help improve the health of veterans who served in the Southwest Asia theater of operations.

Advocacy 

We have a long record of promoting legislation to provide the care and benefits promised to veterans. Our current effort is a bill to allow caregivers to help veterans stay in their own homes longer. Our Presiden, Ronald E. Brown has been working non-stop to add new presumptive and to solve the claims rate issues.

Training 

We provide hands on training to help veterans and their service officers navigate the veterans disability claims process as it relates Gulf War Illness types of claim that are filed under 38 CFR 3.317.

Do remember you cannot file a claim for gulf war illnes only the symptoms of a undiagnosed illness or a diagnosed CMI' as per the 38 CFR 3.317

 

 

Operation Forgotten Warrior II

 

Forgotten Warrior II is a project that is bring understanding to the VA that Desert Storm Veterans are still here and not getting the care or benefits that the VA Centeral Office believes we are getting. If you want to help or see what we are doing, you can findout more on the NGWRC.net site.

The leadership of the NGWRC has been working with fellow Gulf War Veterans, VA staff, and researchers to improve the VA's services for out fellow veterans, and to help the veterans of any era who have a Chronic Multisymptom Illness (such as Gulf War Illness, undiagnosed illness, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue syndrome, or a digestive system illness with no structural cause) better navigate the VA health care and benefits systems as they are.

We are working to improve the C&P exams on these issues as well as the case in the hospitals. We have and will keep having meeting to improve the claim for our veterans.
