Help for Veterans

War Related Injury and Illness Study Center (WRIISC)

  • WRIISC has three centers (in California, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.) that specialize in difficult to diagnose war related illnesses like those that Gulf War veterans cope with. Their study can document current health problems in your VA medical record, which many veterans have found helpful with obtaining disability claims.
