Pre-9/11 Gulf War Era Veterans
Trends in Use of VA Programs
- There have been notable sustained increases in the number of Veterans in the cohort who have benefited from the Disability Compensation, Health Care and Home Loan Guaranty programs in terms of both number of users in any given year and percentage who participated in the programs since 2006.
- In 2019 about 2.8 million Pre-9/11 Gulf War Veterans participated in at least one program, and 72.6% of the cohort had participated in at least one program since 2006. However, considering the living cohort consisted of nearly 5 million Veterans, this means that up to 1.4 million (27.4%) had not received any VA benefits or services.
