Gulf War
Veterans Recount Their Gulf War Stories

Eight veterans discuss how the war and their departure effected their friends and family that they had to leave behind. Their first person accounts show how hard it was to keep in contact with their loved ones and how that sometimes caused them depression. They lived for the support of their families. The Gulf War lasted from August 2, 1990 to February 28, 1991, but became the code named Operation Desert Storm on January 17, 1991. It was waged by a U.N.-authorized Coalition against Iraq in response to Saddam Hussein's invasion and annexation of Kuwait. The war is also known under other names, such as the Persian Gulf War, First Gulf War, Gulf War I, Kuwait War, or the First Iraq War, before the term "Iraq War" became identified instead with the 2003 Iraq War.
