It's been 20 years since the first Gulf War.  In a KWWL follow up to a series we brought you back in February, Waterloo veterans that served in the armed conflict to kick Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait are planning a reunion.

"I think the job that our unit did was superior. The job that we did was great," Kris Jones said.

Kris Jones and Larry Bathen were among the 134 Delta Battery Marines that all returned home safely after the 139 day mission back in 1991.  They're planning a reunion July 30th at the RiverLoop Expo Plaza in downtown Waterloo.

It's scheduled from five to ten that Saturday night.  There's a facebook page set up.  Just look for dbattery.reunion.  Or you can just call Ron here at the station and he can get you in touch with some of the organizers.
