The 28th anniversary of the conflict’s cease fire is April 11


Often forgotten, our speedy victory in Kuwait was not achieved without sacrifice. Nearly 700,000 American soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen served in the Gulf War, and we paid a steep price for victory resulting in 374 dead, 467 wounded, and two servicemen whose remains have yet to come home.


The VFW remains dedicated to honoring all Gulf War veterans – men and women who accomplished their objectives without fail and helped to shape a truly historic event in American history. Today, and every day, we thank them for their service.
