Veterans who care about veterans run the National Gulf War Resource Center (NGWRC). What makes us different than some of the larger, more well funded organizations is our flexibility and commitment to speaking out about all issues in the interest of today’s veterans.
With ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, our board of directors holds monthly meetings and is able to respond swiftly to breaking news, research, and legal developments. With an adaptable organizational structure, and a dedicated staff and board, the NGWRC accomplished more on our small budget than many of the largest veterans’ advocacy organizations with far greater resources.
The mission of NGWRC is to provide education, advocacy and support for veterans suffering from complexities of modern warfare.
The National Gulf War Resource Center is a coalition of advocates and organizations providing a resource of information, support, and referrals for all those concerned with the complexities of service in Southwest Asia (SWA) that comprise of Veterans from Operations Desert Storm (ODS), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). Especially troubling are the symptoms involving multiple body systems, which have been generically termed, Gulf War Illness or multi-symptom illness, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
