Many veterans who have served in the Southwest Asia theater of operations, commonly known as the Persian Gulf War, have displayed a combination of medically unexplained chronic symptoms which have collectively been called “Gulf War Syndrome,” although the VA dislikes that terminology. These symptoms have included fatigue, headaches, joint pain, indigestion, insomnia, dizziness, respiratory disorders, and memory problems.
The VA has granted a presumption of service connection for veterans with Gulf War service who meet certain criteria and display certain chronic, unexplained symptoms for 6 months or more. Veterans seeking to benefit from this presumption must have served in the Southwest Asia theater of military operations. This area includes:
- Saudi Arabia
- The neutral zone between Iraq and Saudi Arabia
- The United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.)
- Gulf of Aden
- Gulf of Oman
- Waters of the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea, and the Red Sea
- The airspace above these locations
