You are encouraged to inform your elected member of the House of Representatives and Senate of this Survey.

TOPIC: To-date there is no online database of veterans who died because of an illness that may or may not be associated with their military or war service in areas where chemical or radiation elements were militarily deployed. There is no publicly accessible database that informs sick veterans if they share an illness that is common to other veterans they served with in the same unit or on the same vessel. This Survey will create an online database of deceased veterans so that living veterans can find out if members of their unit or vessel share the same illness, and thereby determine if something they were jointly exposed to is at the root of their illness.

1. What was the deceased veteran's FULL NAME?
(If you are a living veteran who has been diagnosed by the VA as having an issue with one of the organ failures or problems listed below in Section 7, you may include yourself in this database.)

3. What was his or her Service Number (if known)?

4. Which armed conflict or country did this veteran serve in?
