Arrow Public Comment Sought for Desert Storm Memorial Location

Public Comment Sought for Desert Storm Memorial Location

01: The National Park Service is seeking public comment about where the new VFW-supported National Desert Storm Memorial should be located in Washington, D.C. Of the three proposed locations, the VFW joins with the Desert Storm Memorial Foundation to place it at the end of Constitution Avenue near 23rd Street, NW, which is within eyeshot of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the yet-to-be-built Vietnam Veterans Education Center and the Lincoln Memorial. The other two locations being considered are next to the Potomac River or on the other side of the U.S. Department of State —both sites being nowhere near the Vietnam Wall. At a Commission of Fine Arts hearing yesterday, the commissioners voted to locate the new memorial next to the Potomac River, totally ignoring the voices of many veterans and VFW members in the room. America’s Desert Storm leaders honed their teeth in Vietnam, where among many things, they learned how not to fight the next war. The nexus between Vietnam and Desert Storm is perfect, so make your voice heard today here.RE:

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
