Memorial
14th QM Remembrance, Veteran
USA, USAR, GW/ODS
Greensburg, Pennsylvania – 02-25-19

 

ABOUT THE MISSION:

  The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited by the families of the service members killed in the Scud Attack in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, to gather then stand in silent honor for their Annual Gathering to commemorate their loss.  On the evening of February 25, 1991, an Iraqi Scud missile plunged into a barracks/warehouse used to house US Army soldiers assigned in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.   As a consequence of this Scud attack, 28 soldiers died, 110 were hospitalized, and 150 experienced minor physical injuries and/or subsequent mental health problems.  This one Scud’s impact accounted for more than one-third of all US soldiers killed during Desert Storm.  All served our country with honor, now its our turn to stand in honor for them.
