    Question: is there any updated information on breast cancer for those that were in the Gulf War. I am a Gulf War Vet and had both my breast removed in 2006 just to turn around again and have breast cancer come back on my right side again in 2013. I am currently still going through surgeries, I must have had over 20 in the last 9 years. Been in and out of the hospital. Went to VA to file a claim for cancer and was told NO it wasn’t service connected. Any additional information you could provide would be great.
