Back Ground on U.S. Air Force SSgt Jeffrey Scott Flesher:

Honorably Medically Retired for Gulf War Syndrome from the U.S. Air Force with 10 Medals (Including 1st Meritorious Service Medal, 2nd Meritorious Service Medal, Excellence-In-Competition Medal, AF Achievement Medal, AF Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Longevity, Overseas short, Small Arms, Expert Marksman, Professional Military Education). From 85-93 I worked as a Computer programmer on the (E)F111A on the avionics package, including the Attack RADAR system, Terrain Following Computer and HQ4 Radios, I was also a member of the Air Force Honor Guard as well as a CPR and Self-Aid and Buddy Care Instructor, during the Gulf War the E/F-111 flew 98% of all sorties flown during the war; then as a Helicopter Crew Chief on the MH-60 in the 66 RQS Rescue Squadron at Nellis AFB and in Kuwait during Desert Storm, Operation Southern Watch and Operation Vigilant Warrior, and on the MH-53 in the 31st Special Ops Squadron Black Knights (read Black Ops, Special Knights, remember that Black Ops doesn't exist) at Oson Korea all the time I was a certified CPR and first aid instructor.

Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) history: I came down with GWS in November of 1990 just after getting about 12 or more shots the same day (Cocktail Inoculations), some of them were 3 part shots, which I got all 3 the same day, shots like Anthrax's (the live protein version or ALP), Botulism Toxin (BT), Plague and Experimental Vaccines and Drugs. I got sick and had no idea that what I got was GWS until years later. I have been diagnosed by the Air Force and VA as having a rare sleeping disorder called Sleep misperception and no REM state sleep. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Temporomandibular Joint Disease (TMJ or TMD), Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS), Advanced Deteriorating Joint Disease (ADJD), Anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a rare form of Lymphoma, Anxiety and Major Depression just to name a few. During my tour in Kuwait I was exposed to Depleted Uranium, Lead and Mercury in the water supply, Oil fires and many other chemicals, which caused toxic build up in my body which causes pain like Fibromyalgia and Neuropathy. I am currently disabled. All I have is my family and my computer to keep me happy; between my first marriage and my current marriage; we have 4 girls; two mine and my wife's two.

I'm dedicating what time I have left to study GWS and educate Gulf War Syndrome Survivors; and since the Gulf War II started up it's a never ending job; since 911 we learned two things; 1 United we Stand; 2 United's we Fall; Gulf War Survivors never have a nice day; in this effort I have created this site and other sites like it; I'm working on a better Content Management System (CMS) so that the sites will be the best around.

I have 30 years of Computer Programming and Electronic Engineering Experience and many degree's from the U.S. Air Force and Boise State University and other Colleges I have attended over the years to back me; I have been a Computer Programmer for the United States Government for over 20 years; working for the Air Force, EPA and BLM. I have done work in Electronics, Robotics, Mechanics, Certified Welder, and Aircraft Maintenance and have many hours in the Air flying as well as under the water as a certified SCUBA diver.
