National Desert Storm Memorial
Veteran’s Constituency Survey
A consortium of patriots and Desert Storm War veterans has been assembled and has formed a Board of Directors with the singular and noble goal of designing, securing funding and building a fitting National Desert Storm War Memorial in Washington, D.C. Legislation has been introduced at the national level for this memorial. It is hoped that this legislation will pass within the next few weeks and will result in the appropriation of a significant tract of land on which to erect this memorial in Washington, D.C.
The National Desert Storm Memorial Board of Directors has agreed that it is imperative to first seek input from those members of the US Armed Services who were directly involved in the conflict before commencing conceptual design of this important memorial. If you are a Desert Storm Veteran, we are asking you to take a few minutes to share with us your personal thoughts and opinions. The goal in this survey, specifically, is to tap into the hearts and minds of Desert Storm War veterans to gain an understanding of what they feel was most important about Operation Desert Storm, what sacrifices and lessons learned should be remembered about the war by future generations, as well as what thoughts or images veterans may have in their minds about how their ideas might manifest themselves in a built form.
The National Desert Storm board and design team will review the submissions, and if permitted to do so by the submitter, may follow up with a few selected submitters to schedule telephone or personal interviews to discuss their ideas further. You may submit your response anonymously if you wish, or you may include your contact information and indicate if it is acceptable to contact you for a possible follow-up interview.
Can you help us spread the word about the National Desert Storm Memorial? On behalf of all veterans of Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield, we need all the help we can get. If you can share our initiative with others, it will go a long way toward helping us achieve our goals of creating the Memorial and fostering mass awareness of it.
So, please tell your friends, family, and associates about the National Desert Storm Memorial and this website by word of mouth and by using the social media sharing widget in the sidebar. Your veterans will be grateful.
Do you have a little extra time on your hands that you’d like put to some good use? Why not share some of that time for the benefit of our nation’s veterans!
Right now, we have several volunteer needs that, if filled, could help us make significant progress toward of our collective vision of a National Desert Storm Memorial:
- Legal consulting
- Donor cultivation
- Content development
Like any cause important to a number of people, it usually takes some money to realize the vision behind it. The National Desert Storm Memorial is no different. It too requires funding to become a reality, and it will require funding to maintain and promote throughout its existence.
Therefore, we humbly ask to you please consider a donation to help us, first of all, cover the costs associated with filing our articles of incorporation and our 501 (c) (3) application for tax-exempt status. Unfortunately, you will not be able to deduct your donation from your taxes because we do not yet possess tax-exempt status; however, you will have the honor of being among the first to help us launch this initiative, and we will reward you with special recognition in perpetuity.
Please contact us if you would like to make a donation. On behalf of all Desert Storm veterans, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
