The Enduring Legacy of Desert Storm and Desert Shield

  • The Heritage Foundation 214 Massachusetts Avenue Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield were resounding military successes, but many overlook their full complexity and achievement. These victories came with a whole of government effort, including skillful diplomacy coupled with stellar military execution with a broad coalition of partners. Operation Desert Storm especially helped to restore the fractured relationship between the military, Veterans, and the American Public following the Vietnam era. Given these factors, a closer look is worthwhile. Scott Stump will provide an overview of the environment these operations occurred in, the operations themselves, and their lasting legacy that still influences the world today.
