MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) -- Wisconsin veterans gather in Madison to observe the fifth annual Gulf War Illness Recognition Day.
In 2006, Wisconsin became the first state to designate an annual observance for those who still suffer from post-deployment health issues.
Governor Scott Walker declared January 17 Gulf War Illness Recognition Day, but the Department of Veterans Affairs decided to hold the ceremony Friday due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday.
