Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
Next year will mark 25 years since Desert Storm!
Did you serve in Desert Storm? If you did, General Franks and General Holder are looking for you to join in a celebration!
Here is a message from General Franks for you:
"As you know, we are approaching the 25th anniversary of Operation Desert Storm. Increasing interest in a special 25th that provides an opportunity for many hundreds of VII Corps Soldiers to get together to reflect on our accomplishments and honor the 111 who didn't return with us. Recent leveraging of social media by our VII Corps Desert Storm Veterans Association has led to more than 1000 hits already and rapidly increasing interest in the 25th. At our 24th Reunion event last month many suggested that we not only make the 25th the "best ever" but that we also make it a Friday-Sunday event so that units, branches, and other functions can have their own events, parties, and hospitality rooms that weekend. The initiative of our Soldiers and families in 90-91 created what became the model for now familiar "Family Readiness Groups" (FRGs). Providing an opportunity for our Soldiers AND families to get together to relive our achievements-both in the desert and at home base-is our goal. . .
If you would like to participate in this effort please contact me.
I would also ask you to please share this message with other Desert Storm troopers.
