This Memorial Day, there are those seeking recognition for what some consider a forgotten conflict.
One week ago, a bi-partisan bill was introduced in the US Senate. It would authorize a National Desert Storm War Memorial to be built on federal land in Washington DC.
Operation Desert Storm was fought in early 1991, pushing Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait.
Although more than half a million US troops were mobilized during that conflict, fewer than 300 Americans lost their lives.
But some say that fact should not constitute an argument against establishing a memorial.
"Any American that volunteered to serve their country and to give their life, wherever the conflict is, needs to be memorialized," said US Navy veteran Tony Trevino. He was in boot camp during Desert Storm.
If the bill passes Congress, the Desert Storm Memorial would be built using no public money, just private donations.
