      IOM meeting; May 26th agenda,
      Gulf War and Health: Infectious Diseases
       
      I feel nothing but sarcasm when I think of who is going to speak
      to the IOM on May26th. Kelly Brix, Mark Brown, Craig Hyams,
      Mike Kilpatrick, and others of Bernies Kids will be there. The
      legacy personnel from the last 7 years who have always spoke
      ill of Gulf War veterans.
       
      The question here is will there be more than just myself in the
      audience to witness this, and apply facts from the other side
      of the fence on the issue. Stress did not cause parasitic diseases,
      so veterans need to speak up on this.
       
      This is number three IOM review going on this year, and still waiting
      to hear on the contract of the Gulf War ALS review. Get involved.
       
                                                          Sincerely
                                                          Kirt P. Love
                                                          Director, DSBR
