Desert Storm - War Memorial
Desert Storm Veterans
May 17, 1992 - - a special dedication, memories - - sweet n’ bitter recollections.
August 1990, U.S. troops deployed to a foreign land, Saudia Arabia - - a country of sand.
To those who served with much pride, hearts were with you - - serving by your side.
As hearts cried out “From a distance”, “Let there be Peace” - - everyday we listened.
United States of America flags blew in the breeze, yellow ribbons hung and prayers were sent overseas.
Feb. 28, 1991 - - the “Gulf War” had been won, Pres. Bush sent troops home in March of 1991.
This Memorial Rock is more than a piece of cold stone, It represents Love-Support-Thanks, you were not alone.
This Rock is dedicated to “Desert Storm Veterans” we remember all who served in the wars of past,
