What is the emotional impact of the returning soldiers to their children, wives, lovers, family, friends and society at large? “I cried in prayer to God, Come to me now!” Rodrigo Godoy, Soldier Pastor continues his life-story…

“I have Chronic Multi-Syndrome Illness. The VA says that certain chronic, unexplained symptoms existing for six months or longer are related to the Gulf War service they say no matter what caused it. “God are you kidding me?” Reality, hit me hard when I realized my destiny. I cried in Prayer to God “Come to me now!!!” I served my country during the Gulf War.

My doctors tell me that my health issues are likely caused during my Southwest Asia Theater (Yes, War is referred to as THEATER) of military operations. My illness includes Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Functional Gastrointestinal disorders and Undiagnosed Illnesses such as Muscle and Join Pain, Headaches, Neurological and Psychological Problems, Respiratory Disorders and Sleep Disturbances.”
