Gulf War Veterans Information System (GWVIS) reports

he Gulf War Veterans Information System (GWVIS) provides the best available current data identifying the Gulf War service member population. The GWVIS reports monitor, in part, the service members’ use of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare and disability benefits.
GWVIS reports are distributed each quarter during the following months: March, June, September, and December.

yes it is difficult to find the details of GW Vets who are
using the VA system. I was disappointed how quietly, sneaky
this information is published. It seems it stalled for months
and Congressional memebers are told this report is not Completed
this the 'day before" a hearing or before a NEW senior VA secY or
Depty Secy is appointed. Why is this ?

Is there a reason that the latest report pushes VA-RAC research
do not address clinical programs for chronic pain or fatigue
or Peripheral neuropathy issues/sympthoms in health care/beneifit rating

If this Report (GWVIS) being slanted, how would we stakeholders know? Jagmedic
