As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the primetime program will feature Powell meeting with Jeff Cooper, a disabled Gulf War veteran who suffers from Gulf War illness in addition to multiple sclerosis and other conditions.
As noted by the AP, Cooper, who resides in North Carolina, is heavily involved in causes for war veterans, and spends much of his time ensuring they receive recognition.
