(Washington, DC - November 2, 2009) -
Traveling on her own to speak before a federal U.S. committee hearing of the Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses (RAC) in Washington, DC, Louise Richard, a Canadian Gulf War veteran from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, expressed concern for her fellow Gulf War veterans.

"We're ill too, and we deserve answers, too, but for some reason the Canadian Government has utterly failed us."

Richard stated that she was informed by Canada's Surgeon General that, "there are too few of you to worry about."

Richard expressed gratitude for the RAC's work, and work be U.S. veterans advocates, including Denise Nichols of Denver, Colo.
