VETERAN'S GROUP GIVES 10,000 DISTURBING DVDs TO VETS ON REQUEST
David M. Bresnahan
VERSAILLE, Mo. -- The American Gulf War Veterans Association, in conjunction with The Power Hour Productions, is giving away 10,000 DVDs of the video documentary "Beyond Treason" to veterans who simply ask for them.
Winner of the Grand Festival Award at the 2005 Berkeley Film Festival, "Beyond Treason" documents over 50 years of neglect and abuse of veterans by the DOD, VA and government officials. Using Senate reports, Congressional transcripts, military records and veteran testimony, the documentary explores the history of chemical warfare, Agent Orange, secret experiments, Gulf War illness and depleted uranium exposure.
"We are making this effort to reach out to veterans and their families, because hundreds of thousands remain ill and untreated by the VA. They are being denied any explanation or causation. ‘Beyond Treason' provides answers to questions that government officials and the DoD don't want asked, said Joyce Riley, RN, BSN, narrator of the documentary.
Riley, who is also spokesperson for the American Gulf War Veterans Association, said that "Beyond Treason" is sent at no charge to any veterans who request it. Details of the offer can be found at the web site www.beyondtreason.com.
The video contains actual documentation from U.S. government records giving the details of experiments on military and civilians. It also contains interviews with scientists, veterans, and government officials who verify the claims and describe a government cover-up for the past 60 years.
Riley and co-producer William Lewis do not just fill the 89-minute documentary with opinion. They have extensive government evidence and documentation to support their claims, as well as interviews with very credible people.
“Gulf War Illness is believed to be caused by exposure to depleted uranium munitions used on the battlefield. Others believe chemical and biological exposures are the prime suspect. While yet an even larger group argue that experimental vaccines given to our troops, without their knowledge or consent, may have led to the demise of many of these soldiers,” explained Riley.
A growing number of scientists and respected experts in their fields have been coming forward to share their research, giving support to the claims made by so many veterans about their illnesses.
Gulf War Illness has affected men and women from all 27 coalition countries.
“They are suffering from “unknown causes,” while they wait for answers from their respective governments,” said Riley. “There are no satisfying or even credible answers from the military establishment. A decade of records points to negligence, and even culpability on the part of the U.S. Department of Defense and their ‘disposable army’ mentality.”
According to the documentary, the Veterans Administration has determined that 250,000 troops from the first Gulf War are now permanently disabled, 15,000 are dead and over 425,000 are ill and slowly dying from what the Dept. of Defense still calls a “mystery disease.”
In addition to the DVD documentary, Riley has also placed thousands of pages of government documentation on a CD and includes it as a bonus with the DVD.
“We want to make it easy for anyone to examine the details of the documents mentioned in “Beyond Treason.” Don’t just take my word for it. Take a look at the evidence and see for yourself,” said Riley.
The American Gulf War Veterans Association maintains a web site at www.gulfwarvets.com where anyone who can provide proof of veteran status can order a free copy of the DVD.
Riley and her husband Dave vonKleist co-host "The Power Hour," an independently syndicated radio program. The web site for the show is located at http://ThePowerHour.com. To purchase the DVD "Beyond Treason" click here.
