It has been brought to my attention that some of the links for 'Depleted Uranium' may have false  information, this I do not know, it is for you to decide.
 
As with any information, it is up to the reader to decide if it is factual.
 
The DU story may be like the failed attempt to cover up what we know as Agent Orange

Depleted Uranium, or DU, is a very dense metal used by the military to strengthen special armor on tanks and other equipment and to make armor-piercing munitions. DU is a by-product of the naturally occurring heavy metal uranium, when it is enriched to make nuclear reactor fuel or nuclear weapons. Because DU has had much of its radioactive component removed, it is 40 percent less radioactive than naturally occurring uranium.
The Department of Defense (DoD) maintains a medical screening program to track service members who may have been exposed to DU. It is part of DoD's overall surveillance program for service members when they return from deployment and is a continuation of the DoD program that was begun during the 1st Gulf War. The main policies for the program are HA (Health Affairs) Policy 03-012 and HA Policy 04-004 which provide guidance on when and how the military services will test personnel for potential DU exposure. The DoD Policy calls for offering referral to all service members who have embedded DU fragments or other evidence of DU exposure found during testing to the VA's DU Follow-Up Program. The VA's program was developed in 1993 for ongoing monitoring of exposed service members in order to identify any long-term implications of DU exposure.

Many vets today suffer the effects that this chemical causes and the VA or any other medical institution are not treating these symptoms  as they need to.

This is the chemical that gulf war vets were exposed to in the family of 2-butoxyethanol
  • ethyl alcohol in what they cleaned equipment with; 
  • 2-butoxyethanol or ethylene glycol monobutyl ether; and 
  • diethylene glycol monobutyl ether 
It causes all the symptoms that have come to be known as 'gulf war syndrome' given enough exposure (which isn't hard in war time and with the stronger concentrations.)

There is one chemical, that with overexposure, causes all of these:
