Biography

Anthony Hardie served seven years in the U.S. Army, that included service in the 1991 Gulf War and Somalia.

Anthony is the publisher and editor of 91outcomes.com, created because he is one of the more than 250,000 veterans of the 1991 Gulf War left disabled by Gulf War Illness.

He works to help his fellow Gulf War veterans out of a sense of duty.

Anthony has been a leading national advocate on Gulf War and other veterans' issues since 1995. He has served on the VA’s Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses (RAC) from 2006 to 2013, VA's Gulf War Research Steering Committee from 2010 until it completed its work in 2012, and as a Gulf War veteran consumer reviewer on DoD’s Gulf War Illness Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (GWI CDMRP) Integration Panel from 2006 to present.

He ceased actively publishing to Veterans News Now after it shifted its primary focus from veterans issues to to anti-Israel propaganda.
