    "Since its inception, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been involved in protecting the health of U.S. military personnel and veterans. In fact, CDC was established to address concerns about malaria among our troops during World War II. In more recent years, CDC's National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) has taken the lead in addressing the health concerns of veterans of the Vietnam War and the Gulf War, and NCEH is working with the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) to protect the health of our future military forces. NCEH's ongoing and completed activities in these areas are described below."
