Gulf War Syndrome

Another time...another war...
We welcomed them home as heroes.
Their illnesses caused by chemicals?
Once again, our government says no.

Do they think we have forgotten
Agent Orange and the long fight
our Viet Nam vets had to go through
to show government studies weren't right?

Don't waste our time with denials!
We've been through it all before!
Give our veterans ANY help they need,
NOW! Before there is another war!

On that day when you want to send them
to fight again on foreign shores,
they may remember how you let vets down,
and, decide not to go like before.
