Persian Gulf memorial - Arlington National Cemtery - 2011

Persian Gulf memorial in Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, in the United States. This memorial commemorates all those who served in the Persian Gulf War (August 2, 1990 to February 28, 1991).

 

Regulatory changes at the cemetery limited the size, placement, and number of memorials in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Most new memorials are small plaques placed by military associations and foundations. Placement of the memorial includes a financial donation to help to maintain trees and grounds at the cemetery. As of September 2011, there were more than 140 such miscellaneous memorials in the cemetery.

 

This memorial is in Section 60, placed before a Willow Oak.
