TAB I - Changes in this Report

Version 2.0

Following publication of the first US Marine Corps Minefield Breaching Operations interim narrative in July 1997, we received comments from veterans concerning the report—including comments from the 1st Battalion, 6th Marines Regiment, Fox commander and from the General Accounting Office in their report entitled, "Gulf War Illnesses, Procedural and Reporting Improvements Are Needed in DOD’s Investigative Processes." We responded with an updated narrative that included information based on additional research, interviews with veterans, consultation with subject matter experts, and new information obtained since publication of the interim narrative. This information included:

Version 3.0

The Presidential Special Oversight Board for Department of Defense Investigations of Gulf War Chemical and Biological Incidents reviewed Version 2.0 of the narrative and recommended we republish it as a final report. We have not received any new information on the material presented in the Version 2.0, nor have any additional leads developed to change the narrative’s assessments. Consequently, we made only editorial improvements to the narrative for this final report.
