The National Desert Storm and Desert Shield Memorial is a new national monument to be built at the National Mall in Washington D.C. with a goal to break ground in 2021, the 30th Anniversary of Operation Desert Storm.

Hear from the leads of the National Desert Storm War Memorial Association & OLIN design studio as they speak to the initial efforts, design considerations and challenges, site selection and current construction progress of Washington D.C.’s newest memorial.

On Aug. 2, 1990 Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, his small neighbor to the South and set-in motion a chain of events that would impact America and the rest of the world forever. Over the next 6 months the buildup of U.S. forces would total close to 700,000 Americans.

History tends to overlook the uncertainty and delicate nature of the whole operation. As brief as it might have been, there were American men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice in extracting the Iraqis and liberating Kuwait.

The National Desert Storm and Desert Shield Memorial is dedicated to honor all those who served, as well as remembering all those who didn’t make it home.
