Desert Storm Veterans - Lung/respiratory problems

Military Authority Member
Chris Thomas March 19th, 2013

Looking for other Storm Vets that's having respiratory problems and how severe. I was with 1/7th Cav, 1st Can Div. Have a 2011 diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis. Also had a 2012 diagnosis of prostate cancer that I am now in remission. Lol, I'm only 43. No family history. Please let me know anything or any stories from other vets. I'd really appreciate it. Just looking for answers, ANY answers. Thanks in advance!!
