Close Out Reports

Close-out Reports are investigations involving potential exposures of U.S. military and civilian personnel to chemical/biological warfare agents or environmental contaminants during the 1990-1991 Gulf War. The Presidential Special Oversight Board reviewed the current findings and recommended terminating any further investigation. The Board concluded that any new information was unlikely to improve our understanding of any unexplained illnesses experienced by some 1990-1991 Gulf War veterans. To bring the investigation to closure, the Board recommended the former Office of the Special Assistant for Gulf War Illness to present all the evidence in a close-out report. A close-out report is a summary account of an investigation.
