Program Description

In the years following the return of the last U.S. troops that participated in the ground war in the Persian Gulf, attention has turned from the historic victory to a strange new sickness the press has dubbed "Gulf War Syndrome". While many veterans believe something in the Gulf made them sick, scientists argue that Gulf War veterans are not dying or being hospitalized at a higher than average rate. FRONTLINE tells the story of Gulf War Syndrome, examining the psychology of war, the politics of veterans' affairs and the roles of the media and the biomedical research community.
