View Full Version : Persian Gulf Toxic Returns

Let me get straight to the point.

I worked the supply returns from the Gulf in 91. Tarps, combat gear, the works. We were told to sort the gear. Anything black was crated and shipped for disposal. There wasn't alot that wasn't coated in a thick black tar. I ended up getting some rather weird rashes and still have some patches on my skin that have never gone away.

Has anyone heard of any boxkickers getting Gulf War Syndrome? Thank God in Heaven that I was only on a temp duty in that return warehouse.
