NGWRC Mission and Background
The National Gulf War Resource Center (NGWRC) is an international coalition of advocates, organizations, and members providing information, support, and referrals for all those concerned with the complexities of Persian Gulf War issues, especially facts about Gulf War Illnesses and service members who have yet to return home.
In 1995, we became a formal non-profit entity as 17 grass roots veterans groups across the country formed a coalition to get their health issues addressed in Washington, D. C. By 1999, NGWRC represented 60 groups in the U. S. and the United Kingdom. We have held national conferences every year since incorporating in 1995.
The NGWRC has consistently brought Gulf War issues before Congress and the media, exposing the whole truth about Pentagon policies that severely impacted veterans and their families. Our most valuable efforts have resulted in legislation that required research and service-connected disabilities for certain conditions associated with Gulf War service.
NGWRC is a 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation. We rely on your tax-deductible donations to do our work. We receive no government funding.
