The National Desert Storm War Memorial (NDSWM) is a new national monument that has been approved by Congress and President Trump (March 2017) to be built by 2021 on the National Mall in Washington, DC.
It honors the 650,000 service members who served and 383 military members who died in Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
Construction of the Memorial is led by the National Desert Storm War Memorial Association, a 501(c)3 organization in Washington, D.C. The association is led by a Honorary Board Chairman, Former President George H.W. Bush, and a Board of Directors comprised of Desert Storm Veterans from most branches of the military.
