My inquiring mind wants to know how these figures compare with health problems of non-deployed soldiers, Nat'l Guard soldiers who haven't been called up, and the population in general.

I'd also like to know how the attitude of the general population toward returning soldiers affects their mental health.

So many questions, so many data points!

Both of my brothers were in the Gulf War. One stayed longer than the other and when he came home he started experiencing joint problems and an irregular heartbeat(and he is ten years younger)but wanted to stay in the military so he has. Last summer he broke his leg while racing kids at the end of an obstacle course at Vacation Bible School. The leg is still in a cast and just seems to be very slow in healing. He never had problems with his health before he went over and was just thirty years old when he returned. I don't know if there is a Gulf War syndrome because my other brother is fine. It just makes me wonder.

Oh, by the way, there was no mental health issues with either of my brothers, just the physical problems.
