This war caused my fiance and son’s father to die at the age of 34 from Gulf War Syndrome after being exposed to some shit during his final years in the U.S. Navy. He was discharged at the age of 25, and suffered every fuckin day until he just gave up and died. He had to have a defibulator placed in his body to keep his heart beating. He died countless times and had to be resuscitated. The paddle mark scars. All the medicine. Gout and goiters.
