(CHAPMAN):
"IT'S BEEN MORE THAN 25 YEARS SINCE SADDAM HUSSEIN INVADED KUWAIT.  AND, UNFORTUNATELY, 'OPERATION DESERT STORM' IS BECOMING AN HISTORICAL FOOTNOTE:  SOME AMERICANS REMEMBER IT AS A 'VIDEO-GAME WAR', WHICH WAS OVER BEFORE IT STARTED; OTHERS BLUR THE LINES OF HISTORY, AND THINK OF 'OPERATION DESERT STORM' AS PART-ONE OF 'OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM' OR 'OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM'.  THAT'S WHY WE AT 'AMVETS' BELIEVE THAT BUILDING THE 'NATIONAL DESERT STORM WAR MEMORIAL' IS SO IMPORTANT:  NOT ONLY DID NEARLY 400 AMERICANS MAKE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE FOR THEIR COUNTRY, BUT OVER 600-THOUSAND OTHER TROOPS ANSWERED THE CALL TO SERVE--AND WERE READY TO LAY DOWN THEIR LIVES, IF NEED BE.  ALSO, WE LIBERATED KUWAIT--AFTER A BRUTAL, SEVEN-MONTH OCCUPATION--WITH THE PARTICIPATION OF 33 OTHER, ALLIED COUNTRIES, AROUND THE GLOBE.  THE EFFORT BEHIND THE 'NATIONAL DESERT STORM WAR MEMORIAL' HAS MADE TREMENDOUS PROGRESS, OVER THE PAST SIX YEARS; HOWEVER, WE STILL NEED EVERYONE'S SUPPORT, TO FINISH THE JOB.  HELP US ESTABLISH THIS MEMORIAL ON THE 'NATIONAL MALL', BY VISITING 'AMVETS'-DOT-ORG."
