Abstract Little attention has been paid to the health and well-being of women who served in the Gulf War. Environmental and occupational exposures may affect women differently than men, and we need specific information we can use to determine whether there are preventable risks associated with military duties, deployment locations, or a particular combination of factors. A representative sample was drawn of Air Force women of reproductive potential who were aged 18-34 years at the time of the Gulf War. Women had to have been deployed during Desert Storm either in the theater of operations or elsewhere. In all, 1,200 exposed women (deployed in theater) and 1,200 unexposed women (deployed elsewhere) were sampled. Women were frequency matched on component of the armed forces and parental status. Respondents completed a self-administered questionnaire that elicited detailed information about their histories.
