Gulf War 1 Syndrome, (Desert Storm Jan. 1991 to late Feb. 1991).

*With this the 28th year since Desert Storm and Gulf War 1 (1990-1991) we MUST not forget about this reality of the so-called Gulf War 1 Syndrome, which btw also effected well over 9,000 UK Troops, as well as many of the Americans!  It is still on-going, I had an American friend (much younger than I) and a Marine, who died this past year with many of the maladies of Gulf War 1 Syndrome, He was only in his 40’s!

May we never forget the great effect that War brings, from PTSD to any and all the many other physical aspects and maladies!


Holy Scripture Reading, Matthew 7: 12, NIVUK.

Verse of the Day

“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”
Matthew 7:12 NIVUK

*The Verse or statement by our Lord surely proves the moral ground of the OT, and as we see in St. Paul’s ‘Law and Gospel’ (Gal. 4: 1-6). You cannot have NT or “Covenant” with out the Old! See the Book and “Exhortation” of Hebrews, (13: 22).

Jewish Roots of Christianity

Holy Scripture Reading, 1 Corinthians 10: 13, NIVUK.

Verse of the Day

“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
1 Corinthians 10:13 NIVUK

*Sadly, a much neglected verse!  Indeed GOD In Christ is faithful in all temptations!  There are really NO excuses when we allow our sinful nature to run, but of course there is no perfection within ourselves either, but again only GOD is faithful when we endure. “Greater is HE that is in you…” and “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.” (1 John 3: 20)

Holy Scripture Reading. Philippians 2: 14-16, NIVUK.

Verse of the Day

“Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, ‘children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.’ Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labour in vain.”
Philippians 2:14-16 NIVUK

Operation Desert Storm, 16 Jan. 1991…

Operation Desert Storm: Jan. 16, 1991

Thank you for your service to our nation. would like to take a moment to reflect and express our deepest respect and gratitude to the Courage, Bravery and Patriotism of all of you, our U.S. Veterans & Military. We salute you.

28 years ago today, some of you, our Veteran brothers and sisters, were stationed in Saudi Arabia preparing to move into Kuwait. Everyone here at reflects and gives thanks to the courage and bravery of all our Gulf War Veterans, along with all U.S. Veterans, active & reserve military past & present.

January 16, 1991 – The U.S. Enters the Persian Gulf War

After a call for protection by Saudi Arabia against Saddam Hussein’s aggression, the United States set a January 15, 1991 deadline for all forces to be removed from Kuwait…This deadline was ignored. President George H. W. Bush quickly announced that the U.S. would launch a “wholly defensive” mission to prevent Iraq from invading Saudi Arabia.

Operation Desert Storm

As a result, Operation Desert Storm was initiated – a sophisticated all-out aerial and ground attack to free Kuwait. Over 500,000 of our U.S. troops were sent to the region. One hundred hours after the ground campaign was launched, President Bush declared a ceasefire.

The advanced technology and massive forces used by the U.S. quickly ended the war. Kuwait’s liberation was declared on February 27, 1991 and on March 10 – Operation Desert Farewell began – sending our 540,000 American troops home. salutes and supports all of you, our U.S. Veterans, active & reserve military, along with all of our U.S. Veteran and military brothers & sisters. We thank you for your service to our country. VetFriends would also like to take a moment to reflect and honor the many brave men and women who have sacrificed the ultimate for their country.

Throughout history in times of both peace and war, yourselves and millions of other heroic U.S. Military personnel have proudly served our nation, from WWI-II through to the Korean War, Vietnam & the Cold War, to the Gulf War and the current War on Terrorism. salutes, thanks and supports all of you, our U.S. Veterans, active & reserve military of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines & Coast Guard – All Heroes of our nation.
