This website is from the early days of OSAGWI and is reflective of the
beginning appearance.  It does not look like the last incarnation only
because that got so watered down. The military Gulflink keeps changing
hands and URL's to hide it. There eventual goal is to delete it outright.
Once I die off then this website fades, they win, and it all will vanish. Forgotten
chapter of America. Until then, this website is a reminder of those forgotten
vets betrayal by America.

DOD sits on a vast amount of records that the bulk have been reclassified Top
Secret to be hidden for 50 years. Under the guise of WMD clause in the
national security records review system. Originally the records were listed
and reviewed like this:
 
1995 - 20,000,000 Gulf War military records declassified
1996 - 6,000,000 files given to OSAGWI to put on website
1996 - 1,700,000 files are medically relevant
1997 - 42,943 put up on gulflink.osd.mil website
At a cost of $150,000,000 less than .007% of the Gulf War Military 
records have been declassified for public release. 16 years later 
99.993% is classified , and the Pentagon has vowed to reclassify 
these records. This include Confidential Records that should have 
been released at the 15 year mark. They were not, and not at 20 years,
25 years, or 30 years. To protect private interest that profited from the war
and protect government officials from over 44,000 mistakes made there.

On February 14th 1999 I sent OSAGWI a FOIA asking for the bulk 
of its records names be declassified, and sent to me. I received a 
partial reply from General Vesser in a box with 2,877 pages, and 
two CD's. On the CD was the Structured database file and other part 
was a unstructured file. Again, only of the 42,943 files on the 
public server. In the Nov 5th1999 response letter from OSAGWI to 
me they explained they were processing the classified portion of the 
log sheets for me. That was the last I ever heard from them on paper 
concerning this FOIA. It remains mostly unanswered to this day 
OSAGWI database file of 42,943 files 
OSAGWI response to me concerning partial response to FOIA
on the other 6,000,00 files.

The Pentagon hides behind Executive Order 13292 so that the bulk
of what happened in the Gulf remains hidden from the public. Except
this is criminal intent to withhold information of neglect, misconduct,
mishandling, and much worse during the Gulf War. The very same
people who say nothing happened are the ones with full knowledge
of those records, and vow to conceal them at all cost. The same people
who lead us back to Iraq again under false terms, and created yet another
disaster to live down.
There should be FULL public disclosure, and we have the right to know 
what really happened in Iraq from 1990 to present. Only, America has
no interest in the truth or the rights of her veterans. This is a shameful
chapter of our history that ended up sending troops back and back under
false pretenses then betrayed them as well. We even protested sending
the troops in 2003, proven right for doing so, and still glossed over as the
occupation of Iraq went sour. Now a 2 trillion eye sore that America wants
to forget. There is no justice for the vets that served there then or now. There
wont till everyone connected to this has been dead a long time. The truth
buried not for national security, but economics, and the millions of lives
it destroyed over oil prices.

The Sec of VA, former presidents, and how they divert attention
away from themselves in a crisis


Had several phone call from VA Friday. In every one of them I had to assure that
person I was dealing with at the Temple VAMC that I wasnt out to get them. The
Secretary of VA's staff had contacted them, and put it off on them. That the problem
was the Temple VAMC. I had to assure them this wasnt a Presidential request or
a Congressional request. Ive had two Presidentials and 4 Congressionals in my life.
My first was a lousy 10% rating in 1997 from the Clintons. This was me writing to
the Secretary of VA who in return ducks every problem this last year.

The point was my problem is the with the Secretary of VA himself as his policy the
last year has been one of contempt and arrogance. The man is a coward, and he wont
write to me like others have in the past. Worse, he continues to implement policies
and procedures that are harmful by accident or on purpose with indifference to input.
In his mind, he isnt accountable to me or anyone else. Save Congress or the
President. Completely forgotten he is a public servant, and supposed to respond
directly to public inquiry.

If anything, Ive found people at the Temple VAMC Im desperately trying to protect
from the fall out. That I dont want them to testify to Congress about what they saw
because VA will fire them as whistle blowers. The one thing its so hard is to find
people who care, and I want them in place to do just what they do. Ive seen this too
much over the last 25 years. VA is real quick to get rid of people who try. Im in a
pickle here because Ive been a round long enough to see how the villains cover there
tracks by decimation. One bad apple will wipe out a whole unit to keep there job.
Mediocrity at the highest levels keeps itself in place by isolation and diversion.
Which has produced a horrible attrition issue at VA.

Been very busy backing up 25 years of data files from my very earliest days with
the government in 1996. Proving my paper trail in the event I suddenly vanish.
Ive forgotten just how I used to write the White house and Pentagon. Found this
5 page letter from Under Secretary of DOD Bernard Rostker explaining to me the
current situation with Gulf war issues, at President Clintons request. As the years
past the response letters from Presidents got much shorter. Bush barely used
2 paragraphs. I had opposed his deployment to Iraq in 2003 and the world knew it
as global media picked up on that..I could have saved America 2 trillion dollars by
staying out of it. In return, I almost disappeared then when they seized my plane
at Dulles airfield to shut me up. The patriot act in play in 2003.

We have policy makers that implement bad ideas, and do so without our permission.
For 25 years Ive opposed this with purpose. To improve on that. Enough so I was
able to get a Congressman to let me write a letter to VA, and he signed it. That
turned into a VA federal advisory committee. Then I got appointed to it. Not just
anyone could do that. He had to see something in me to do this. As he talked to
me in person. Very few choose to do this or write me. The cowards.

Gulf war vets have been punished for 8 years with the ABHOR registry. It was
on purpose. I called it out, and now its about diversion. Not dealing with that.

Oh, I got my ABHOR exam in a few days. Suddenly Im worth there time for that.
Like all the other programs I followed to the letter all year long that fail me.
But, they didnt fail me at Temple. They failed me from the executive level as
VA does not want Gulf war vets to speak in public. They dont want us in the room
with them except in diversionary ways. Like keeping the RAC in place so its
only research they can avoid - rather than healthcare and benefits issues. The
one thing VA has been adamant about, dont give Gulf war vets a soap box for
healthcare and benefits issues. Let it all fail.

I can only save VISN 17, I cant save the country. Its too big. But, I can show the
employees of VISN 17 what there VA bosses have planned for them. See if they
will save Texas from itself, as we have nothing above them but tyranny. I think
these folks got that Friday.

So much wasted effort here, and needless distraction. To make a vastly bloated
tax fraud do the job it was supposed to. Boy, do they not get me. Just how bad
does this really get before people wake up. At least its got me aware of my website
and how much data is missing. As Ive lived a life very few ever dream of.

National Academy report condemning the ABHOR registry

Reassessment of the Department of Veterans Affairs
Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry


https://www.nationalacademies.org/our-work/reassessment-of-the-department-of-veterans-affairs-airborne-hazards-and-open-burn-pit-registry

Im pissed, VA burn-pit-registry and VA HOME knew about this report in October and so far
they have been hiding from it. So while Im paralleling every aspect of it, and
proving Im right VA including the Sec of VA has been ducking me.

317,000 participants out of 3.7 million, and yet only 30,000 got medical exams
for 8 years. Proof VA is using this to keep vets at bay.

I sent out the first article from Omaha to others. Warned my VA EH coordinator
of what is coming with this. Im at the center of this with answers and no one
wants to work with me, a Gulf War vets with answers. Completely sinister.

November 29th, 2022

Burn Pit registry and Gulf War veterans since 2014

My update project now has taken a monumental turn for me. Having discovered
many hidden issues. Then couple that with the usual red tape and indifference
at all levels.

After hours of work, I got through the Burn pit Registry eligibility menu. I had to
settle for denoting "Iraq" and "Saudi Arabia" without putting down Kuwait. But,
having done so I sent 3 emails last week at all levels of VA and DOD. Most were
done BCC so others didnt know the addresses. Only the VA stuff was public.

The point being I had 3 separate databases of information as reference, and that
the CRUR should be part of the air borne hazard registry. As well as still classified
data at DOD over locations that should NOT be classified.

I got the attention of several people on high. DHA was real quick to say this was
resolved when its not. Then VA threw HOME ( Health Outcomes and Military
Exposures ) at me which two emails have been forwarded. I can tell you this is
at the highest levels today of VA and DOD because Ive proved that for 8 years
VA has done all it can to turn GWI vets away from the Burn Pit Registry. To make
it hostile and offensive on purpose. So needlessly complicated that tens of
thousands turned away for 8 years.

Suddenly, Im now eligible and able to finish the survey? It should not have been
near this hard. Its not over either. Now I get to see how punitive and shallow
this is too. How quickly they will grab at somatic type questions and rigged
simplistic responses that can be skewed. Then what?

VA lost ground this year to Camp Legune and Burn Pit Registry. It has to address
Toxic exposures by law. Its created a loop hole to bypass the Feres Doctrine to
make civil tort claims stick to the government. What they want is to minimize the
cost by making sure Gulf war vets dont apply or try. If they do, then make it so they
give up quickly. We are the orphan cause between then and now.

What is missing in all this is human kindness. 30 years GWI vets have suffered,
and America doesnt care these days. Its devalued us. Only to find now they are
pretty much devaluing everything. Which makes it easy for VA to go on business
as usual. Cold, indifferent, condescending, and getting a little sick perversion out
that anonymity to be cruel to others. Spite over nothing. A grudge from 1995 on that
just wont go away.

Been a very hard year with VA. Ive done it all by the book, and every step has been
drug out then filled with back handed issues. Gulf War Registry, WRIISC Referral,
WRIISC exam, and now the Burn Pit Registry. Which is why Im now versed on
where all this is at in 2022. I did it your way VA and its still designed to fail me
in a colossal way. What little I did get from it, I fought hard for over months. Each
step was frustrating over nothing.

To VA at the top, Im a annoying nobody unworthy of there time. They make that
very clear all year long. How dare I write them or complain. Only all year long I think
Ive made dozens of valid points that have gone unanswered. Im not worthy of
answers? Really? Public servants in office to aid the population? They sure dont
get that any more. Doors closed, and spit in our direction more than ever.

Its a sign of things to come. When all doors are closed. Not far off now, as the
White House got rid of internal phone numbers people used to call. This is not
the DC I knew from 1999 to 2005. When it was friendlier. I didnt think so then,
but I sure see it now. You could walk up or in everywhere back then - now they dont
even answer phones.

You get what you give America, and cutting off your military is the last straw
before total anarchy. It was for Rome, and others. I know better and yet Im very
much alone in many ways because the opportunist dont want people to catch
them cashing out. Behind closed doors, anything goes. Since 2020, its a ghost
town in DC they wanted. As long as people dont unite or fight back. Its every
where now - and people are picking each other off thanks to it.

CRUR data, the Army declass project, OSAGWI hidden internal
files, and the hideous mocumentary "Leave no stone unturned"

My update project now has taken a monumental turn for me. Having discovered
how much damage had been done to my website slowly over time. That others
had altered it to cover up my long years of hard work. Which is why Google
pretty much dumped me.

Bit by bit Ive gone back 22 generations of backups to recover the original
files as far back as 2006. Im stunned at how bad the website got. That others
took advantage this way to destroy it and me. Will take time to put it all back.
Thousands of pages. Making sure they work. Then Ive got some new stuff to add.

Going to build a Steve Robinson page with the 2002 materials he handed me.
He left OSAGWI, and tried to air what went on there - Congress blew it off. They
were wrong to do this. OSAGWI was fowl, arrogant, and mean. They did not
have the veterans interest at heart, at all. Which the mocumentary "Leave No
Stone Unturned" proved. OSAGWI got away with fraud, waste, and abuse of
public funds. Then left off the hook to cover up the Gulf Wars much darker side.
As did PSOB's staff for them. It was truly vile for those of us that had to watch
close up. Being spit on like this month after month.

Bare with me, about to be some major changes next few days.

November 20th, 2022

Starting completely over in so many ways, as I found Gulflink
had been gutted - get it all back out there and some

I had run into a very bizarre situation. I needed to send my CRUR unit data to
VA EH to show my locations in Iraq - and there all gone. Not just on the website
but back 12 generations of copies. No telling how long this has been gone among
dozens of other files. To include the PAC and PSOB websites. My website has been
gutted of nearly all its files.

See, the Burn Pit Registry has a intentional flaw. It doesnt list gulf war battle locations
or offer grid cords. So I could not get past this screen. Weeks later the EH coordinator
called asking what happened. I told her. The offered to send her my CRUR sheets. Only
to find there all gone. Took me 3 days to back track to a hidden USB stick from
2006 before I found them again. Now I can prove where I was in the Gulf war, and also
get others into the Burn Pit registry with the same.

Its made me go back through gigs of old data. Even other peoples like Chris Kornkven
and Steve Robinson stuff they gave me long ago. Which made me realize, its time
to start releasing all that. As Steve Robinson gave me internal OSAGWI records and
documents in a secret office meeting. I vowed I would sit on them. Since they never
came after him for having them, then that means they were not classified and suitable
for public release. So now I have to verify this with Deployment Health. Among numerous
other files that I have inventory logs of for Army, Navy, Centcom, Satcom, Air Force,
Sea Bees, Special Forces, Pathfinders, and long list I once tried to FOIA. In fact, it
should be a world record that hasnt been matched since. But, they dont keep those
kinds of records. I was sending more than 5 a day for 245 days. Stacks and stacks of
green receipt cards showing they got them. The server system crashed and security
review got involved. OSAGWI freaked out. Which is when I got the OSAGWI sever inventory
spreadsheets among numerous other things. Maxwell AFB logs, Centcom logs, and
then dozens of other files like this. Then Government Reform stepped in, and Rep
Christopher Shays demanded NARA let me have greater access at Suiteland. OMG,
the stuff I found. By then Steve Robinson saw I was going to break the bank and he
talked about OSAGWI. That lead to more and more. Like the stuff PSOB, MHVCB,
and OSAGWI confided in private with me. It got real weird after that till March 2003 when
they seized my plane at Dulles AF and rifled my luggage before my speaking on German
TV. They were looking for classified files.

Im being punished for having Gulflink all the time. Now they hope it vanishes into
obscurity as the got rid of Gulflink.osd.mil. Its now https://gulflink.health.mil/ but its
not up on the weekends. So Im going to put up the PSOB, PAC, MHVCB websites
to make sure its all up. As vets need to get there CRUR data to get into the Burn
Pit Registry. Having to start that all over again.

So as of today the CRUR data is back up. Over time so with the bulk of it. Till Im
back in the top ranks of Google one way or another. As there has been a very sneaky
effort to hide me in plain sight. Im about to change that.

November 19th, 2022

Google rewrites history, and aids the government to help
conceal what the wealthy dont like online abut the Gulf war

Search engines were quite the rage in 2000. Big selection, and they had some
neat properties. But, Google rose up and took the stage. I liked it at that time
because it took 18 unusual words and thrust me into the top ranks for decades.
Then slowly as time went by, it became more selective and I saw it was a screening
tool to limit what people searched for. It was certainly about popularity, but it was
also about reducing that as well. To make people unpopular, and wait for obscurity
to rid selection.

Then in 2020 Yahoo set out to rid me of my long standing Gulflink mail list. It was
a chronicle of daily issues back to 2000. Was quite unceremonious. Like none of
it ever happened. The build up to the 2003 Iraqi invasion, and the world media as
we opposed troops deployment. The betrayal of those troops. The medical problems
that followed them afterwards like leishmaniasis and acinetobacter baumannii. Finally
the burn pit fiasco. The formation of my own VA federal committee, and our betrayal
at the hands of the Gulf War Illness Task Force. The decimation of the RAC, and
its gutting by VA with ringers that ruined it. So much death, and betrayal.

I asked a VA EH coordinator to look up "PAC Mark Brown" which should have
turned up dozens of aspects from 1995 to 2003. Nothing. Presidential Advisory Commitee
didnt come up or him. He was on it. It was such a scam because they abandoned there
records in a warehouse after the committee was disbanded. NARA could not find them
and I fought to get them saved. The website too. They were all too happy in 1999 to
pretend all they GWI data they collected vanished. Same thing with the Presidential
Special Oversight Board and the Military Health Veteran Coordinating board. Up to
2002 it was all the rage to just abandon things.

Im trying to prove steps in the system as they progressed over time, and this all
had mostly vanished. Leaving me as the sole remaining largest archive of all this that
can prove what happened from 1997 to 2022 in our arena. As I saved everything you
could imagine for this very purpose. Including every email to 1997. As now most of those
people are quite dead on both sides of this issue. Very little exist now of our long struggle
with DOD / VA. No one has what I have, I promise you. Not this complex, and of all
the 33 groups that existed that now have faded away. Even the British stuff.

Many would like me to die silently in the Gulf war crowd because I was a battling
cantankerous person in there eyes. Yet, I saved it all because it was proof of who said
what at key times. The dynamics of the crowd. Its numerous failings. I didnt want
to falsify any of that, I wanted it verbatum to look back on. As I could have finished off
the NGWRC a dozen times all the way back to when VVA was ready to pull there
funding. I was the last person that had there TV commercials Ross Perot paid for.
I owned the domain name briefly, and it didnt cost them dearly to get it back. Over
and over till at one point I was very nearly voted president at a national meeting in
Atlanta - when others sabotaged the nomination. My battle with Steve Robinson
was epic by then as with OIF under way.

All this gone at the hands of Google. Which I find quite sinister. As I see its meant
to devalue the unpopular in favor of wealthy public opinion. To silence Gulf war
vets and help bury the past.

Im needed but not wanted. My new goal is to get this stored at the Smithsonian
so that NARA cant keep concealing what it shouldnt. That 22 years of constant
betrayal will not be rewarded with a silent victory. To cover it all up, and write us off.
Change American history in favor of the wealthy. That gulf war vets were little more
than a nuisance to America to swept under the carpet.

Im still here, Google will not win his fight to make me vanish. Nor with DOD Deployment
health or VA. You wish I was gone, I didnt die those many many times. Im more
like Lazarus now but in the bad ways. I deserved better than this.

Its all about profit, and if your poor - your screwed

I watched another product silently vanish from the stores. Just about anything
from .50 to $1 is not profitable and goes up or gives up. This one was Southgate
Beef Hash. Its now too hard to make it, and they gave up rather than go up on
price. Its one of dozens of items I relied on as a poor person. Not good for me,
but it was alright for my growing daughter.

For me, inflation is between 40% to 100% now across the boards. So many food
items have doubled in price or more. Staples beyond my reach now. Shortages
on so many things at the bottom end. The attitude is, the rich must profit at all
cost and they no longer care if anyone makes it. Much like OPEC and the oil
prices. Its about extreme profit now. Time to cash out.

The poor just take it out on each other. Misdirected anger, looking for easy targets.
Road rage and un-civic behavior is explosive around me. So is the contempt
people have for each other. The bottom feeders are lashing out in passive
aggressive ways not realizing people are building very deep grudges against
them. Out here, idiots play each other like no one will catch on. Resentment
is becoming explosive. These will become life time grudge matches they
wont win. Several have learned already. But, it ripples over into so many things
like the quality of road repairs and such. TxDot here sabotages its own road
repairs on purpose.

The media is careful to ignore the credit card defaults about to happen. Well
over 100,0000,000 credit cards. Thats a possible 1 trillion dollars on top of 3
trillion in other credit assets that just tanked. As the rich made sure the only
way people could pay there bills was use credit cards to make up for the
lack of income. Sucking the world dry. Out of a10 trillion asset base?

No one is trying to fix any of this. Over all people want this all to fail. Because
they want there neighbor to fail. Oh, they will make it as long as there
neighbor doesnt. No you wont idiots. Because you destroyed the infrastructure
and industry base so well that it cant be rebuilt all at once. Will take decades
and if its not profitable people wont do it. Because it wont be about civic, it
will ONLY be about profit. That resentment wont go away till those people
die off harboring it. Like over 40 years.

Once the poor catch on, it will be mob rules. They will work to dig the rich out of
there bunkers over time to get there revenges. These folks will fixate on you
for there suffering. Because rather than be civic, they will only focus on the
negative. Like for 20 years and such. Waste even more time making sure that
no one gets ahead.

Its starts with the small things. Till all that is left is over priced things. Then
no one can afford those. Each thing that isnt profitable vanishes. Till there
is nothing left. All of you made this happen. Kept living in denial and thinking
it will fix itself. How? Your not fixing it. You stood back and gave the devious
and dishonest the keys to the city. They then purged those and went on a
bender to celebrate. Because the 3rd purge has begun of what didnt sell,
and manufactures gave up because it didnt make a profit. Freezer sections
of stores are about to STAY bare of cheapest items.

Well, the margin call is any time now. Growth economics was a lie. We are
way over the line, and bled the poor dry. The very rich know this and try to
cash out. Then hide in there bunkers and laugh at the rest of us. Only, people
they hired to build these bunkers know were they are. People will camp on
your door step waiting for you to come out when nothing is left. Thats your
legacy on a global scale? People will forget what you did? Not likely. Thats
all they will live for at that moment. Has been throughout human history.

Could have been civic. Global. But, too many out there feel there are entitled.
Theyve lost sight of what really matters. Like Putin and the Ukraine. As people
will fight back till both sides loose. Till nothing is left. Salt the earth. Putin
lost sight of just how toxic past invasions of long ago got. His quest will
back fire on him and all around him. Because its not realistic.

All around me now are dozens of indicators that people think this is a golden
time to destroy others, and take what they have. They do NOT get how people
will fight back, and then never let go of what happened. Lifetime battles have
begun that only end in violence. Unrealistic toxic mindsets that do not get
the out come of there actions. You want too much! Something is better than
nothing. Your not owed people, give that up. Work to keep what you got
and learn to live on less. Much less thanks to you. Not getting involved in
the right way when it mattered.

Its too late now. Billions will die soon. Suffering on a epic scale. Till people
realize long after the fact they killed the golden goose. When bread is a
luxury and they will kill for it. Did NOT have to happen. Fully preventable.
Still is. But, not with these 2 digit IQ's out there chipping away at it. Live
for the moment?

For me the economics war has been going on for 2 years. Loosing another
thing each day. Knowing its not coming back. Been all too real for me. I
know growing food is super hard. I have beetles right now wiping out my
gardens by the thousands. Drought and temperatures make it impossible
to grow food here. Its not a joke to me. Trying to get seed stock for next
year from what is left. Texans will die by the millions if they had to grow
there own food here. Not even enough seed base here if they started today.
Cant grow food in 106 degree weather and no water.

There are things I know about Texas internally that most have no clue.
Ive tested the networks and OMG. The contempt is amazing. Then you have
the Trump anarchist in the wings in key positions ready to strike and
take over when the bottom falls out. You can have it! Like the Taliban
being given Afghanistan - turn out the same way. People wont rally to
your cause folks. Internment camps? Only make it worse. You cant control
undirected anger at that scale and resentment in your ranks.

What if Im wrong? Great. I hope Im very wrong. Only, Ive been 87% on
such a large number of predictions. The next ones Im keeping to myself
because I really hate them. I really hope Im wrong. Want to be on this.
But, Im a student of human nature and I dont have the luxury after all these
years of being wrong. No one cares, and so it begins. Ive been living on much
less and have practice. I already know what it feels like and some. Ive hardened
off to the crappy way people are - they tried early with me. Those that think
they deserve more than they need, they are all around you. In fact, thats
pretty much everyone around you now. Even family members, Ive watched
it here and in mass. Its universal. Your only fooling yourselves.

September 26th, 2022

The phone campaign on DC has begun

Early today I got he automated email from the Sec of VA office that my
complaints have been passed on to VHA. Only, Ive gotten these before
this year. Dead letter office till now.

It had been a long time since I called the White House itself. Did today only to
find they killed that 202 number. Things are even worse than I guessed. So
I called the White House veteran VA hotline at 855-948-2311 only to find
its not at the White house any more. OMG, they put the fox in charge of the
hen house. But, turns out my email was also sent to them and the complaint
number is 8524321. So will hold my breath on this? Yeah right.

( Part 2 of the white house numbers. )
Really? Ive had a forgotten secret phone number all these years that Donald
Trump killed off? Now I have dozens of others that he had killed off. 202-456
is dead all the way down the list. 202-456-5484 wasnt among there list. But,
Biden decided to keep it that way. Hide in plain sight. This does not deter me.


What the Secretary of VA does not get is this time Im going to call anyone and
everyone around DC like I used to do 20 plus years ago. This time Im going
all out to make a scene like I used to in 1999. Till its impossible to ignore or
avoid me. The last year now demands it. I think the scale of this has gone
wildly out of bounds by any comparison. Im done being ignored.

This all is a firewall, I intend to tear down this firewall. The one built slowly
since 2008 till now its absolute. Which means I will have to stand in front
of the White house with a picket sign soon. That is now on the books.

You folks went way too far, and now I have to go public in some really big way.
Draw attention to our GWI plight. Rather than be spit on any more. Only to
be crushed by the wealthy in some new more cruel way. Cause right now
GWI vets have NO representation on the hill and VA plans to wait us out
openly. We have no rights, hurry up and die you scummy vets, Really? Ive
been the bench mark to how far they can and will go at RAC meetings. To
mistreat and vilify a vet in the open in front of others. That my former VA GWI
advisory committee had zero value in the past. Good ole boy system.

Contempt is the name of the game, not progress. Time to call that out.

RAC meeting Sept 21-22nd

This was a mix of things for me. The usual snide condescending attitude
from the committee, and yet good news - they got rid of the chairman.
After a year of begging for his removal I guess they heard me. Since I was
writing the Secretary of VA about him over and over.

The meeting was filled with endless technical flaws for both days. Day
2 was much much worse. I saved the chat bar session for both days
including the drop out part when they reset the Webex peer.

What I tired of was 3 different folks who had to control the meeting in there
own manic ways. It was highly disruptive and was keeping others from
being heard more. Room fool of chiefs, and no indians. Only, it was 50
armies of one trying to cancel each other out. Was almost comical at
times how it came off so petty like shouting on twitter. Text bombing.
Not real content either, just endless commentary. One liners to keep
others from posting. Boring at best.

One thing I really did not like, they still havent posted the presentations
from that day. I said on the chat bar it would be two weeks, and the RAC
staff said right after the meeting. Well, its Sunday and nothing. Meeting
ended Thursday. Could have let us download them that day on Webex.
Nope, lets treat the vets like crap once more - who will do anything about
it? Certainly not Congress or anyone else. VA is above the law and its
anything goes. With tax payer dollars.

Then I tried to get back on the Airborne Hazards and Burn pit registry.
VA says Im not on it after being one of the first to apply. Now a new
road block. Deployment locations. Gulf war, Desert Storm, it does not
offer that for Iraq. I knew this was rigged when you cant pull up the southern
regions or the Madina Ridge. Dozens of spots around the oil well areas
that dont come up either. Its geared for OIF from 2003 to present. How
many thousands of GWI vets have been turned away by this screen.
Search aspect only offers newer deployments in middle and northern Iraq.
Im outraged by this. Its going to take me weeks of data mining the servers
to pick this apart and find some on my locations. As it does NOT use
grid coordinates or GPS data.

I wrote once more to the Secretary of VA, and I spelled out much of the
last year up till now. I truly doubt he will do right by me now. He hasnt
all year long. He is afraid of me, or so lofty that Im a peasant to him.
Either way, he certainly isnt brave enough to respond to me himself.
Sad part is, he will be gone shortly like the others - I have to learn yet
another Secretary of VA all over again. 8 of them so far for me. I liked
Brown, Principi the best. Peake gave me my committee. Others have
been much worse. Snide, rude, mean.
Letter to Sec of VA Denis McDonough

Im not going away, and Ive done it by the book all year long. If its this
bad for me, how bad is it for others who dont under stand the system?
How many tens of thousands are being driven away each year on purpose?
With loop holes, dirty tricks, technical flaws, and just simply not having
a answering machine for VA offices like the WRIISC. Its all one way the
bulk of the time. Dictatorial. Vicious.

People go boo hoo hoo around me, and yet they arent out doing me. Get
out of my way and let me get something done. As for VA, mediocrity has
crippled you. Either change path or get out of my way. We did it your way
for 12 years now and its dead locked. You cant improve on it and wont. So
let me have a crack at it. Ive got ideas by the box load and its based on
what I lived through including this year. Your top down, Im bottom up. Only,
Im the customer and this isnt working. In real business circles, you would
be chapter 13 and living under a bridge. $100 billion dollar bloated failure
that would not survive in any other arena with all the twisted loop hole
laws VA hides behind. Your not even transparent about your budgets.

30 plus years for me of all this. I have the right to complain, What I would
like is a crack at fixing some of this rather than watch it get worse. Its so
distorted and convoluted now the only happy people are the worst ones
still employed making sure no one else can get them fired. Legacy VA and
DOD employees with grudges decimating thousands of lives.

Simplify folks, distill this down. CFR 38 is supposed to be fluid. Its stagnant.
Then lets cut away to fat and get to meat of this. Instead of pretending I
dont exist and your doing a great job by rigged polls. I dont share your
glowing internal reviews of your infrastructure. Too many upper crust
going to expensive training camps and bonuses for failing at your jobs.

You dont want this critique? Then stop treating me like Im a migrant
farm worker with no rights. Im a combat veteran, and I wasnt playing
in port - I was being shot at in Iraq all the time. 100 hours of endless
moments that this was it - that one would get me. Boom. Boom. Hour
after hour. How dare you insult that.

Lets try a different direction that doesnt involve more years of this. Maybe
we try actually making some hard progress. Instead of keeping us at bay
year after year with your ringers and bogus programs.

Its time to do some work, and Im eager to do my part. With some help.

WRIISC exam wrap up, getting my General ham license
and the coming RAC meeting Sept 21-22nd

Boy what a action packed month it has been for me. Things happened literally
by the hour. It all over lapped with the WRIISC exams and studies that went
on and on. First there were 17 video conferences, and then more kept being
added on. This time, TBI came up, and caught me by surprise. So the whole
thing shifted on me.

I had just gotten my ham license upgrade to General. Then applied for the
RACES ham emergency management system. Got on the ham air, attended a
few ham net meetings. Fixed a vast number of technical problems on my end
pretty much alone. Then kept moving onto APRS and other systems. Found
the area is a wasteland more than I knew. New task for this. New plan.

Locally, Im not allowed to comment for now. Not going to interfere with the
people investigating. Lets just say others went too far, and now they have a
very unwanted form of attention. They didnt know when to stop.

The WRIISC was comparing notes from 2008 to 2022 and found that I was not
degenerating like I thought. But, way too much emphasis was put once more
on psychology and PTSD. The test were highly biased with trick question
designed to make a person fall into 1 of 5 categories - all meant to be some
form of personality disorder. Like about 10 hours of this which I felt was obsessive
and needless. You cant tell a agenda is still here and deployment health is
still using its grudge match to condemn Gulf war vets.

All said and done I managed to use this exam cluster to my advantage despite
the way it was handled. Ruled out so many things. Positive I made a lasting
impression on most of these folks. As for Dr. Barrett, his build up to the final
comments was a huge let down. Gave the impression we were going to
change my world, and maybe a benefits increase. Then he fell flat on me and
bet the farm on PTSD. Nothing changed for me, and nothing will if I follow his
methods. But, not counting on him and not worried about it. VA isnt serious
about helping me and pushing me into the PTSD hole ties my hands as a
personality disorder. Willed myself sick. Grounds for dismissal of other
physical disorders. Somatic. This hasnt changed for 2 decades now. 3.317
fails at this one as well.

The coming RAC meeting is no better, VA gutted them once more but left
the chairman in place to decimate further. His double speak and back handed
methods have done just what VA wanted him to do. Keep people guessing and
spinning in place. Meetings get bigger and people assume they are being heard.
Unless its research, not enough looked at. Neither is the chat bar they all assume
is being recorded. Im the only one doing that. These meetings would not be so
bad if they were in person. Then these folks could not get away with all this.
The exceptionally rude and condescending committee could not get away with
this in public rather than hiding online. Just what VA wants.

Im kicking ass all over the place. To a silent audience. As no one helps no one
is the real montra here. 2 wrongs make a right, cancel out reality. Sooner or
later reality will set in and then some light is going to get shed on a bunch
of hidden issues that need airing out. When dishonesty back fires on all and
the hole backs up under them. I can wait, I see it coming.

All year long Ive systematically tackled the Gulf war system from scratch and
found it still designed to fail. From the Gulf war Registry exam, burn pit registry.
WRIISC referral process, WRIISC exam system, and how VA handled me from
the top down in all this. Including the cowardly Sec of VA McDonough trying to
avoid direct interaction with me all year long. Oh, you can email him alright -
he just hides in his office. His staff certainly do the same. Nothing like past
Secretaries of VA Ive interacted with. Not a short list either.

These people are as dishonest as they can get. So that means the RAC meeting
on the 21st and 22nd is going to be so blatant it will defy logic. The chairman and
staff will put on there rose colored glasses and pretend people like me dont exist.
Which other shameful so called advocates have tried to cash in on that. A perfect
dynamic for VA to remain static. Distant, off the mark.

Just like with the PACT act, a end of life benefits program. This is a terrible law
that VA plans to abuse as if its magic. Its really to help the terminally ill leave
benefits to there spouses and children. Of course they jumped on this because
it really didnt change he presumption models. The diagnoses part and ICD 9.
The misisng part is quality of life for those that arent terminal yet.

Im going through the motions here by the book, and VA is failing me on simple
stuff. If its failing me and Im very well versed, then its really failing others that
dont know what to ask or how. VA loves this part, saving money at the expense
of veterans lives. How many died this year due to this? We wont know, there is
no monitoring or reporting this for real. If it wasnt in VA care than it didnt happen
and they dont report that. 92% cant get it. VA wins. All is well.

The show down with VA over all this is when, not if. The severity of this grows
with each passing week. Im still here, I didnt vanish. VA and the secretary of
VA would love if I did. Cowards.

Pact Act, and A government spiraling out of control

It all kind of came together watching Congress deal with Trump, just how
openly dishonest America has become. How each side knew what the other
was doing in Washington DC, and how far the abuses went. Just how far
national security has only become a tool of the rich to cover up there tracks.
Then when there fellow billionaires dont like it, turn on each other.

How can I possible get the Gulf war records released when a hand full of
very crooked people control our countries darkest secrets unopposed. As
each President since 1990 knows what is hidden at NARA. They have to
cover it up, or risk exposure. Just like Trump hinted at 911 once the heat
was on him. Give the Bush family a black eye. Detract from him.

Then I watched the Pact Act in play. Congress tried to kill it just like it tried
to kill PL105-368 in 1997. The irony is, this is a toothless law that really wont
grant very many service connections. Which is why VA is embracing it now
like it "always' endorsed it? OMB and others in VA picked its weak points
apart and already plan to stall like they did with Gulf War vets. To minimize
payouts, care, and the actual veteran that need it the most. Figure about
less than 5% even getting anything out of this, and 30% rating or less.

The new trick with VA is to poison the research aspect of this, and redirect
the funds to other projects like they did with the WRIISC. In about 5 years
people will see this when its too late. Because, VA does not have to publish
where the money actually goes. No accountability.

Ive cut the rest of Gulflink off. Might as well. Veterans wont rally, and VA is
not accountable to Congress or the vets. Pact Act was a bone to lull these
people back to sleep. Its NOT a victory. Its not sweeping, and filled with
loop holes. Ive been at this 25 years, and Ive seen it up close most of that.
Clerk of the house, and HVAC didnt even warn these folks.

Well, come October is the great credit card defaults of all those people who
lived on credit most of the last 2 years. Bled dry by the rich, live for today
as its all going back to normal next week? Keep spending. Its wiped out
the poor who now have maxed out. The damage is too great, and trillions
in derivatives will vanish over night as the banks go into margin call. Then
China and Russia will make there moves in the chaos.

Im surrounded by idiots. Watching them tug at a very fragile thread in a
dozen directions. Powerless, and having to brace for the obvious. What
could I possible know, Im just a poor dumb vet. I have no value to anyone.
Just because Im not wealthy, and ruthless?

Simple is better in all things. Living on so little. Keeping away from the
distractions, and empty promises. Go devalue yourselves. Im going to
focus on my plants, chickens, and ignore you all. America gutted itself,
and is a lost country. Its going to learn from its mistakes shortly. That
living on credit is a very bad idea. Inflating to infinity.

Good luck with all that people. Im scaling back and focus on common sense
stuff. As I know better on so very many levels, and Im done explaining them.
Go fake each other out. See where we all end up a year from now.
