OUR SITE HAS BEEN APPROVED!
our MEMORIAL site has been aPPROVEd!!
After years of efforts, meetings, Acts of Congress, Presidential approval, and governmental agency hearings, the National Desert Storm War Memorial Association is proud to announce the exact location where the memorial will be built:
23rd St NW and Constitution Ave NW
Washington, D.C. 20037
This has been the longest, daunting, and most enduring part of our endeavor so far; it has also been a very rewarding one. It has allowed us to research many aspects of several sites in D.C. and we have acquired an utmost appreciation for many of them and of course the site we acquired was the most appropriate and deserved to construct the memorial and to provide its ultimate mission: for remembering those who served, honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice, and educating current and future global citizens about the importance of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
Now that the site has been obtained, one of the biggest phases of this project remains—to raise the funds to build it. Although the land is provided by the government, no tax dollars or government money will be used for construction. So, all money must be raised through private donations from citizens, companies, etc.
Now is your chance to be part of history—to help build a permanent memorial that will honor all Desert Shield and Desert Storm veterans.
