First Gulf War Exhibit

This exhibit remembers the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991 when the United States led the most diverse coalition of nations in recent history in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Shield to oust Iraqi forces that had invaded the Middle East nation of Kuwait. The government of the State of Kuwait funded this exhibit to honor the 75,000 men and women, and their units stationed in North Carolina, who served and sacrificed to liberate Kuwait. Those soldiers honored include the bases of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, U.S. Army Fort Liberty (Bragg), and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.
