Huntsville in Madison County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Global War on Terrorism
Huntsville Madison County Veterans Memorial
The Iraq war opened on 19 March 2003, to overthrow Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and his threat to peace in the Middle East. A United States led coalition of air and ground forces quickly defeated the Iraqi army and deposed Saddam, but a deadly insurgency developed following the end of major military operations in April 2003. In 2007, new tactics and additional American troops turned the tide of the war and increased safety and stability in Iraq. On 31 August 2010, United States led combat operations officially ended, signifying the successful transfer of Iraq’s security to Iraqi Forces. By the end of 2010, more than 36,000 United States Service Personal had been killed or wounded.
