Feb. 24, 2021 marked the 30th anniversary of the start of the 1991 coalition ground campaign to liberate Kuwait called Operation Desert Storm.
Hostilities ended in a cease-fire approximately 100 hours later, on Feb. 28, 1991.
The poem series “10 haiku about Operation Desert Storm,” by Randy Brown, first appeared in the anthology Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors, Vol. 6, published by Southeast Missouri State University Press 2017.
In recognition and reflection on this anniversary, this blog is daily posting one of these haiku poems. This is the first time these haiku have been presented in a visual format.
