In brief: Desert Stom

Those who were near conflicts during or downwind of chemical weapons depot demolition, had exposure to toxic chemicals which are currently believed to be the cause of the illness.
Several specific causes have been investigated, including Pyridostigmine bromide (pb) nerve gas antidote (napp) pills, organophosphate military strength pesticides, chemical weapons, and depleted uranium.
