We’re meeting during the 30th anniversary year of Desert Storm, and our Reunion Theme is Riders on the Storm – Desert Storm. We are in the process of booking speakers from Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines who were key participants in Desert Storm.
National Desert Storm and Desert Shield Memorial
In accordance with our theme, note that the National Desert Storm and Desert Shield Memorial is a new national monument that has been approved by Congress and President Trump to be built by 2021 on the National Mall in Washington, DC.
