Desert Storm Observation


On January 16, 1991, President George H. W. Bush announced the start of what
would be called Operation Desert Storm-a military operation of coalition
forces from 34 nations to expel occupying Iraqi forces from Kuwait, which
Iraq had invaded and annexed months earlier.   When the war ended on
February 28th, 1991, 148 Americans had died in battle.
To remember the service and sacrifice of those Americans who participated in
this war, Shelby County Memorial Veterans for Foreign Wars Post 8904 and the
Auxiliary will conduct a wreath laying at the Veterans Memorial on the
grounds of the Historic Courthouse in Center.  The program will be held
Tuesday, February 28th, at 10:00 am.  As always, the public is encouraged to
attend and help honor Desert Storm Veterans.  Questions contact Post
Quartermaster Larry Hume at 598-2976.
