The VII Corps Desert Storm Veterans Association was founded in 1996 by General Fred M. Franks, US Army Retired, and a group of dedicated wartime veterans. General Franks was the VII Corps commander during Desert Shield/Storm.
The Association was formed to:
- Foster camaraderie between VII Corps Desert Shield/Storm veterans at annual Reunion events;
- Preserve the legacy of Operation Desert Shield/Storm;
- To honor and remember our fallen comrades at a Memorial Service during each Reunion;
- Provide charitable assistance to VII Corps Desert Storm veterans and their immediate family members though a scholarship fund that has awarded nearly $425,000 to date.
If you served in Desert Shield/Storm, we need you.
