Spc. Kirt P. Love

Mr. Love is currently Director of the Desert Storm Battle
Registry since 1997. After years of personal frustration with
government inactivity over Gulf War Issues, the DSBR was
formed to accumulate data concerning the War and post effects.
To track military record data, medical records, research data,
and the lack of tangible DOD/VA medical care provided veterans.

Kirt distinguished duty was with the US. Army was with 141
Signal Battalion, Company C of 1st AD; Deployed from
USAREUR Germany attached to VII Corp.

He was awarded Army Commendation Medal for service’s
preformed with the 141st Signal Battalion, 1st Armored Division
during Desert Shield/Storm from December 20th, 1990 to April
30th 1991. At that time he functioned as Power Generation
Equipment Specialist .

Post deployment illness kept Mr. Love from return to his pre
military occupation of commercial sign illustrator, and muralist
due to hypersensitive to the material composition of the paints.
Mr. Love re-trained in the electronic Information processing field,
to include electronic document research, transmission, and
electronic security. Out of financial desperation Mr. Love briefly
worked for CompUSA in Government Computer sales at their
National Call Center.

Due to Gulf War illness he is unable to continue this full time
position, and has returned to his mission as military researcher
to determine exposures his unit encountered to establish his
own case before BVA review in Washington DC. In this effort
he has written and obtains responsive to over 820 FOIA’s from
varied agencies such as DOD, DIA, NSA, FDA, CDC, NAVY,
EUSEUR, Dept of State, and OSAGWI and so on.

Mr. Love keeps an ongoing Registry of over 1,000 veterans he
has met, and which issues disturbs them. He has personally
interacted with over 3,900 in the last 4 years. Mr. Love has
attended meetings with the IOM, Independent Gulf War Illnesses
Conferences, Pentagon Conference with Gulf War Investigative
Offices, OSAGWI Town Hall Meetings, Presidential Special
Oversight, CDC Chemical/Biological conference, and so on.
Events attended, literature, articles still on the net:
Restoring Faith in the Pentagon; Science Magazine article
Like many other veterans, Love and Hammack--both ill after serving in the 
Gulf--have turned their anger into activism. And they're sure of one thing: 
The Department of Defense has no intention of letting the truth about Gulf 
War illness come out.
